If we are talking "corrective" exercises for ACL injuries: before a person can run, they need to walk. Before they stand, they can lay down and do valuable stabilization exercises. LPHC Strength is as important as stabilization. Glute strengthening and stabilization would be a main focus! These exercises would be great once a person has shown the ability to do lying glute bridges, hamstring ball rolls, quad lifts.
