Among the significant injuries developed by soccer athletes, the knee injury is the most frequent, accentuating the ACL that are usually more injured and can cause the player to leave the sport due to the appearance of probable difficulties in intangibility and purpose of the athletes knee joint. To determine the functional kinetic diagnosis, analysis performed by a physical therapist should be the first step. In this way, a construction of the therapeutic plan should be made related to the patient's own and specific needs and instances. If a patient is suspected of having ACL (anterior cruciate ligament injury), it is necessary that, throughout the evaluation of the case, the physical therapist involves his attention in the patient's history in relation to the description of the possible mechanism of injury through the history. . Football athletes who play professionally undergo an intensive number of training sessions and games throughout the year. The great exposure can cause an intensification of the occurrence of injuries, causing the wear of physical health, weakening the sports performance and the career of the players. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to discuss the role of physical therapy intervention in the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament injury, highlighting, above all, the incidence of injury in soccer players. For this, a bibliographic survey was carried out on the proposed theme, using SciELO, PubMed, PEDro, Google Scholar as a database, with a search for the descriptors: Rehabilitation, Anterior Cruciate Ligament, Professional Football, Physiotherapy and Sports Injury, with research carried out both in Portuguese and in English, prioritizing articles between the years 2012 and 2022. In this way, scientific articles were obtained as results that positively prove the effectiveness of the physical therapy approach in the sports field. Therefore, physiotherapy participates in both prevention and rehabilitation of the patient, thus improving muscle function, reducing pain and returning to sports activities.
