The WS+EMC Knee Club has been developed for athletes by our highly experienced sports physiotherapists to enhance rehabilitation from serious knee injuries and surgeries.
- Ligament reconstruction, e.g. ACL reconstruction
- Patella dislocation
- Other painful or growth related conditions
In addition, any athletes looking to improve their lower limb strength, performance and prevent injury will benefit from attending the sessions.
ACL injury recovery
- ACL rupture is a common injury during adolescence and adulthood and can have a devastating effect for young athletes where sport is an important part of their life
- Statistics show that only 55% of athletes return to competitive sport following an ACL injury and that they often have functional deficits despite performing at a high level
- 25% of athletes will re-tear their ACL or tear the one on the opposite side
How Knee Club can help:
Our Knee Club uses an individualised and methodical approach to rehabilitation which is necessary to help athletes back to sport and prevent subsequent knee injuries, including ACL rupture and others.
