Q: What exercises can address the snapping, cracking, and popping after an ACL reconstruction surgery?
The snapping and popping means that there's an imbalance or tight misaligned muscle, therefore causing the snapping and cracking. This could potentially lead to early onset of arthritis. For exercises, try to perform Calf Release, Hip Flexor release, IT band release, Side steps with resistance band, Inner thigh squats, and VMO activation.
