Yes-optimizes result: One recent study reported similar outcomes in patients who followed a self-guided rehab program to those who did formal therapy-key point is that both groups were doing therapy; patellar tendon grafts in particular benefit from pt early on to avoid postop stiffness. Talk to your surgeon-he/she should have a protocol for your therapist. I recommend sportsmetrics(tm) before return to agility sports. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I injured my knee two weeks ago. I am having surgery for a complete LCL third degree tear with a bicep femoris tendon retraction. How long until I will be able to walk with crutches after my surgery?
Generally no: Ankle scopes requires two small 1cm portal incisions where cameras are used to evaluate the anke joint then to clean out synovitic tissue, loose bodies, or repair focal areas of cartilage damage. This would generally require a short boot or splint. If you had a scope assisted ankle fusion or or boney/structural procedure needing post op stability then a cast may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had 1st degree MCL knee tear/sprain 2.5 weeks ago from ski. Can walk with 1 crutch but have pain while bending knee. Should i be alarmed? Meniscus?
Maybe.: As long as it is an isolated mcl tear it will heal uneventfully. It could be a medial meniscus tear, though. A careful exam can usually distinguish between the two, but in some cases an MRI is needed to rule out meniscal injury. Pain with walking or bending can be seen with both. ...Read more

Soon: A well performed arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy does not damage anything and merely removes a painful mechanical tear. As soon as the knee calms down and overall strength has returned, return to sports is safe. This can be anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on the person. It can be very quick, but variable depending on situation. ...Read more
It's Possible: After any surgery, it takes time to heal from it. Most people with ACL repair surgeries will take 3-4 months to feel like the knee feels stable and stronger as the graft sets in. Obviously following your doctor's orders are key and when rehab starts follow it to a T. You will do just fine. If you are concerned talk to your doctor. If surgery not planned consider Regenexx Stem Cell Therapies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

18 yr old female with a possible meniscus tear. Do you recommend surgery? Will i be in an knee brave immobilizer? How long until i can drive after?
Yes/no/maybe: It depends how bad the tear is and which meniscus. Many meniscal tears can be treated with physical therapy alone. I would start by seeing an orthopedist or sports medicine dr, possibly getting an MRI to see exactly what's going on inside, and try pt. Many surgeries can be prevented with pt. ...Read more
