    I have had both ACLs repaired 20 + years ago in the UK. If this was done to me, my tibia would slide forward as in the classic shear test for knee instability!! I was told once by a PT that having both knees lax (matched) was better than them being uneven…

    Hi Tessa,
    Thanks for your comment. I have had great success with this exercise with many of my clients that have had knee surgery. Both pre and post. The model in the video still has a mini bend of the knee at the bottom and is supporting the move from the bottom of the glute and hamstring and is not jamming into the back of the knee.And the Theraband has give so it is not a forceful application at all. It just helps to activate the back line in both extension and flexion of the knee and hip. But every client is different and not every exercise and movement is right for every client. I agree with your PT. Better matched than uneven! Love, Jen
