Zack’s believes in providing the highest quality of care, that is evidenced-based, to help patients bridge the gap between early rehab to late-stage performance. ACL rehabilitation is a long journey, and it is a TEAM effort between the patient and their providers. It is imperative to have strong communication between providers to optimize the patient’s recovery.
