Group A treated as experimental with execute knee movements protocol with used which taken selected nutrition’s for rehabilitation and. Group B as control were executed knee movements protocol, without the uses of nutrition’s for rehabilitation of ACL knee injury. 8 weeks nutritional program applied on experimental group only and check list and nutrition schedule prepared by experts of both core disciplines. The paired sample ‘t’ test between both groups showed significant difference at the level of 0.01and also t.ratio had shown the significant effectiveness of selected nutraceutical for rehabilitation of ACL knee injury i.e flexion[Ex.Group 20.75*-Co.Group 19.40*] extension [Ex.Group 18.59*-Co.Group 8.09*] muscle circumference [Ex.Group 5.88*-Co.Group 3.60*] and movement steps [Ex.Group 14.59*-Co.Group 10.11*]. There is a significant effect of nutrition on ACL knee injury. Experimental group was found better rehabilitation as compression to control group.
