How can a young boy aged 18 prevent arthritis after having acl reconstruction surgery?

1 Doctor Answered
Usually we recommend patient to undergo ACL reconstruction in symptomatic patient due to ACL injury to prevent early arthritis changes. That's you already undergone. You continue physiotherapy as advised by operative surgeon. Needs some more information regarding date of injury and operation and current knee status like Range of motion of knee joint.
