Background/Purpose: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is routinely performed in sports medicine. We aimed to determine if there is any protective effect of postoperative physiotherapy in preventing graft rupture after primary ACL reconstruction (ACLR). Methods: A retrospective case–control study was carried out, with demographic data, concomitant meniscal injury, and intraoperative fixation methods matched. The number of sessions of physiotherapy attended by the rupture group and nonrupture group were compared using binary logistic regression. Results: No significant relationship between the frequency of postoperative physiotherapy and occurrence of graft rupture after primary ACLR was identified. Conclusion: Further research is needed to verify the effect of physiotherapy in the prevention of graft rupture after primary ACLR.
