It contains more than 100 specific rehabilitation exercises after an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament, as well as explanatory guides of the fundamental ideas that a patient should know about this type of injury.

The anterior cruciate ligament is the most important ligament in our knee.

The application consists of 3 fundamental sections:
1. Start: with basic information for patients about the pathology, symptoms, complementary tests and surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee.

2. Rehabilitation: depending on the date of the injury and surgery, the exercises that should be performed in each stage are explained very illustratively. These exercises have been done in animated format (gif), so that it is easier for patients to repeat. All these exercises, also serve for recovery after any knee injury.

3. Prevention: several exercise protocols are exposed to prevent anterior cruciate ligament injuries, in which, following a series of exercises in training and warm-ups, it is scientifically proven that the incidence of this type of injuries decreases.
