CASE STUDY: Post Operative Knee

Miss T, a 30 year old tennis player / coach came to the clinic following a reconstructive repair to her torn anterior cruciate ligament.

During the examination it was found Miss T had a swollen knee and lacked full movement of the knee. There was significant muscle weakness in the leg. She used 2 crutches to aid her walking.

Treatment consisted of advice regarding ice packs to reduce the swelling, home exercises to improve the range of movement, muscle length and power and gait re-education. The rehabilitation was progressed in difficulty as appropriate for Miss T’s sport. She also had some soft tissue massage around the knee and lower limb.

She attended a short course of hydrotherapy sessions early on in her rehabilitation.

She returned to tennis some months later.
