Anterior Cruciate Ligament Knee Injury: Roller Bridges

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Knee Injury: Roller Bridges


Lie down on your back and place a roller underneath
your lower legs between your calf and ankles to start. Activate the inner core muscles of the low
back and keep them engaged throughout. To start, curl the roller towards you butt
while you bend your knees. When your heels come over the roller, bridge
your butt up nice and high and hold it at the end for a good long second. Then slowly bring the butt back down moving
the roller towards the feet, reversing the direction of movement with control back to
the start. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets
daily. This exercise is a great way to strengthen
and give more stability to your knee which may be weak or unstable from a previous or
current injury of your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (your ACL) and is great for building your
strength and balance in any sports involving jumping, running or cutting. If you experience any pain or have any problems
doing this exercise consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
