Hi, I as well just tore my ACL in my left knee 3 weeks ago. It will be a few months before I can get surgery because my daughter just had meniscus surgery last week...have to time it where we aren't both in PT at the same time. So I spoke with my doctor and he recommends the stationary bike to help with ROM and I downloaded a progressive PT program. It recommends certain exercises at different times past the initial injury.
This is the link to the exercise program recommended: http://www.massgeneral.org/ortho/services/sports/rehab/Acute%20ACL%20injury%20rehab.pdf
These exercises will help strengthen the leg muscles prior to surgery as well as help with recovery of range of motion.
