The aim of this research is to prepare rehabilitation exercises for football players with reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament and to determine the effect of rehabilitation exercises on improving the range of motion and muscle strength of football players with reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament. The research community identified the injured players in sports clubs in Babylon province for first grade and excellent football, and the number of (10) players for the season (2021-2022). He performed muscle strength (grip and extensor) and range of motion (positive and passive) tests, and the rehabilitation program lasted twelve weeks, with three rehabilitation units per week. The research reached a number of conclusions, including that rehabilitation sessions have a positive effect on the muscle strength (extensor and prehensile) of the knee affected by a partial tear of the ACL in football players, and that rehabilitation exercises have a positive effect on the range of motion (negative and positive) of the knee affected by a partial tear of the ACL. The researchers' recommendations include emphasizing the rehabilitation approach because of its role in anterior cruciate ligament recovery and performance improvement, as well as emphasizing the spread of health awareness among athletes through rapid review in the event of injury to avoid complications and allow a quick return to normal.
