I started at Eastside Sports Rehab right after I injured my right knee (torn ACL), rehabilitating it for surgery. In a few words, thanks to Lisa’s guidance and great work I was able to ski again without missing a season. It amazes me how much she knows about how your body works and what it needs to heal.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is located in the knee and can be injured or torn when it is harshly twisted in the wrong way. ACL tears are especially common in athletes, including those who participate in sports such as gymnastics, football, soccer, tennis, or downhill skiing. All these sports require sudden stops and changes in direction, making the risk higher for twisting the knee and sustaining an ACL injury.
An ACL injury is painful and debilitating. Those suffering from this type of injury typically experience severe pain, swelling, limited range of motion, and instability when trying to bear weight. Fortunately, our Bellevue, WA physical therapy services can help treat your ACL injury and provide some much-needed relief.
According to GetPT1st, “research shows that 26% of non-contact ACL injuries could be prevented by specific exercise programs.” At Eastside Sports Rehabilitation Clinic, we are dedicated not only to helping you recover from your ACL injury, but we are also able to help you prevent further injuries from occurring.
After diagnostic tests and physical examinations are complete, our physical therapists will design a specialized treatment plan based on your specific needs. Your treatment plan may include: manual therapy, ice and heat therapies, ultrasound, or targeted exercises, all aimed at providing relief and functional rehabilitation.
