Authors: Brett T. Mueller, Luke T. O’Brien

Abstract

Multiligament knee injuries (MLKI) are complex injuries with an array of factors that can impede return to play (RTP). Careful consideration of these factors in conjunction with periodized rehabilitation programming is strongly recommended to optimize patient outcomes after MLKI. This paper explores RTP rates, the factors that inhibit RTP, and provides an outline for designing a rehabilitation program for returning patients to activity.
