Physiotherapy Recommendations - ACL reconstruction

Greetings everyone!

I recently had a freak accident. I went from a sporty 26 year old to a cripple on crutches for 6 weeks. I had an ACL reconstruction and partial meniscectomy on my left knee. I am 4 weeks post-op and on the lookout for Physiotherapist in Zurich area to help me through rehabilitation. Anyone had good/bad experiences with any particular center.

I have looked into the usual suspects, Balgrist, Hirslanden and Schulthess, but any input in helping me decide would be greatly appreciated.

Just a little desperate to hasten the recovery and rehab process.

Cheers!

Hanspeter Lüthi is both a physiotherapist and an osteopath.
Knowledgeable, experienced, competent, realistic, encouraging.
Speaks German and probably English.
You'd have to check availability.

Re: Physiotherapy Recommendations - ACL reconstruction

i just chose the therapy center closest to my home after my knee operation, as i hated traveling with crutches.

Re: Physiotherapy Recommendations - ACL reconstruction

Thanks doropfiz! Will try and get an appointment! Thanks k_and_e, I initially had the same idea of finding some therapist close to where I live, but had a frustrating experience with a center in affoltern! Thankfully, I am partially mobile on crutches and could afford the travel once a week! Thanks a lot for the input!
