MPFL Protocol

Keys to a Successful Outcome

  • Therapy should start 7 to 10 days after the surgery to prevent knee stiffness

  • Avoid over-stressing fixation or dynamic valgus early in the rehabiliation process

  • No running until week 16


*Should be worn night and day, can be removed for therapy and hygiene

**Avoid closed chain exercises on land past 90° of knee flexion to avoid over-stressing the repair
