After I have my ACL repaired how long will it take me to return to playing soccer?

The type of repair and coinciding damage as well as how well you do with rehabilitation all ties into how long a full recovery will take.  Surgeons recommend physical therapy for a minimum of three months and as much as six months following reconstruction.  They also do not recommend full return to pivot-type sports (i.e. soccer) for nine months.  That being said, however, sometimes people do get back to full activities more quickly.
