The Osteoarthritis Action Alliance’s Secondary Prevention Task Group wrote a consensus statement to offer recommendations to help clinicians preserve someone’s long-term quality of life and wellness after an anterior cruciate ligament injury. “The group achieved consensus on 15 out of 16 recommendations that address patient education, exercise and rehabilitation, psychological skills training, graded-exposure therapy, cognitive-behavioral counseling (lacked consensus), outcomes to monitor, secondary injury prevention, system-level social support, leveraging technology, and coordinated care models.” The evidence review document (link below) offers the supporting literature for each recommendation, methods for the consensus process, and any dissenting opinions.
