In recent decades, it has been increasingly common for athletes to suffer injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Typically, individuals who undergo reconstructive surgery of the ACL will also undergo some sort of physical therapy or physical activity treatment to help the ligament heal and recover efficiently. The goal of this study was to assess the overall impact of different physical activity levels following reconstructive surgery of the ACL and the impact it can have on the recovery process in collegiate athletes. A anonymous survey was sent out to participants to obtain information on the type of graft used in surgery, the participants activity levels following surgery, and how these factors may have contributed to a better or worse recovery process overall.
