ACL INJURY - RETURNING TO SPORT WITHOUT SURGERY

IMG_5378.JPG

A subset of people who suffer an ACL rupture can successfully return to sport without surgery.

We refer to them as copers or responders.

How do we identify them and have a successful return to sport?

  1. Screen for suitability - this isn't for everyone
  2. Systematically rehab - progression is key
  3. Test against objective criteria with minimum standards

CLINICAL PILATES - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Pilates is a specific form of controlled exercise focusing on total body strength and movement.

Clinical Pilates differs from regular Pilates by having a trained Physiotherapist assess and prescribe specific exercises based on the individuals needs.

The exercises could be specifically to rehabilitate a certain injury or to work on a specific movement patterns and strength deficits.

Unlike a regular Pilates class Clinical Pilates is not a once size fits all approach, at Flow we have a boutique style equipment studio with 3-4 people per class allowing the Physiotherapist to monitor each persons individual program closely and progress as needed.
