ACL Survey Results from January ACL Comeback Club Party
We had the pleasure of hosting our first (and maybe annual) ACL Comeback Club Celebration on January 3th, 2017! Over the past 10 years, we have seen hundreds of patients who have injured an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) which is a ligament that helps provide knee joint stability. We had an amazing turnout for our party and it was so great to see how well everyone is doing despite sustaining an ACL tear! We took advantage of the opportunity to get some outcome data from our attendees by having everyone fill out a short survey when they walked in. See below for the results
