June 16, 2014

I recently visited the Washington University in St. Louis for the second time. The first time, close to two years ago, was for help coming off my ACL reconstruction. (There is always something to be said for having someone’s else’s eyes. They will see things you can’t.) This time was to attend one of their Movement System Impairment courses. The […]

Why the Triple Hop test isn’t always a good barometer for ACL rehabilitation

October 6, 2012

For whatever reason the Triple Hop test appears to be a popular tool used in the ACL rehab world. Primarily as an indicator for how well the surgically repaired leg matches up to the non. I suppose in theory it makes sense. If the surgically repaired leg can perform as well as the non in […]

This turned into a behemoth of a post. I started writing this on the plane ride home and well, the cute girl next to me could only distract me so much. Next thing I know I had 15 pages. (Remember in college how you had trouble writing 10 pages, double spaced? Weird.) There is a […]

Rather than continue posting one week at a time, I decided I would post a few weeks in conjunction with one another. Weeks 9-12 mark the third month of rehab. Overall, other than consistently needing to achieve full knee extension the first 6 weeks or so, this has been a pretty smooth process. I’ve barely […]

I saw my surgeon at the end of the 6 week mark. So far, so good. My x-rays came back solid and I passed the Lachmann test. Both very good signs. I was concerned about some popping I was having in the knee but other people who had the surgery, as well as my surgeon, […]
