Cha Cha real smooth! 5.5 weeks post-op. Modified monster walk. Wide stance, knees aligned, maintain tension on the band. Controlled directional changes. One of the hardest parts is keeping your toes forward and preventing them from extending. #acl #aclreconstruction #knee #rehab #theraband #physicaltherapy #chacha #functionaltraining
Yep, I died today. Left the box literally dripping with sweat. Also managed to pick up a barbell for the first time in 5 months and do some super light weight deadlifts (30kg)!

Top two photos are my “totally shredded” ACL pre-surgery, bottom photo is my replaced ACL using donor tissue. Haven’t posted much about my ACL surgery recovery since Day 6. Between the surgery and my first post-op visit with the surgeon, I had minimal pain and everything was pretty easy. Days 7-10 (today) I’ve had more pain and major achiness in the muscles used to accommodate the way I’ve been walking. As I mentioned in a previous post, when there is any sort of trauma to the knee (surgery counts as trauma), the quadricep muscle “shuts down”. Physical Training helps with many things post-op, but one of the focuses is strengthening the quad - I could barely flex the muscle at all post-op! I’m strengthening every day, but it’s a strange feeling having to learn how to properly walk again and just to build the strength to match your other leg. Like, I can’t climb stairs alternating legs atm. On top of that Friday-Sunday at the shops were insanely busy and I had to take appointments and be on my feet for significant portions of each day. Halfway through the second appt on Friday I took my brace off (it was getting in the way) and pretty much left it off until today - reminder the surgeon technically gave the go-ahead to remove it on 7/12. So while the situation wasn’t ideal, I got through those very difficult 3 days with the help of the wonderful Simply Luxe ladies, my amazing mom and step dad who came down again from Wisconsin to look after William, my awesome dad, and my hubby Peter who is always there to refresh my ice, to remind me to sit down and put my leg up, and will bring me a glass of wine at my beck and call 😍 what a dream boat. 💕💕💕 Today was a particularly grueling PT session, but I biked for 10 mins and fully rotated my leg around forwards and backwards (!!!), can do mini squats, bend to at least 120 degrees, and a host of other activities I would’ve thought impossible at this point. Definitely feeling it today though! 😫 Time to ice + elevate • • • #acl #aclsurgery #aclrecovery #aclreplacement @acl_recovery_club #kneesurgery #allograft #aclreconstruction #aclrehab #recovery #surgery
#nevermissamonday After a week of being out of town, I was ready to get back to camp! I miss my routine at times, I missed eating clean , I missed waking up early , I missed checking off my workout first thing in the morning! So glad to back and ready for this week ! #aclreconstruction #campgladiator #interval #sprints
I’m officially two weeks post op! After surgery, I couldn’t even get in or out of bed without help. Now I’m about to start weaning off the crutches and I’m seeing improvements in my ROM/ability to walk almost daily. There have been lots of tears and frustrations already, but it just makes me appreciate the little improvements and time spent in nature SO much more. Week three, bring it on. ☀️
Day 1 was a success and to top it off I passed my 6 month post op assessment 👊🏼 golfing here I come !
ACL Rehab - early strengthening ——— It’s clear that I am passionate about ACL rehab as I just see too many people not getting the care they deserve. I’ve written about it in the past but I don’t think everyone is qualified to treat ACLs. While some people may find that harsh, ACL rehab is complex. When people don’t get the care they need, they end up never fully recovering and being at risk for tearing their other ACL. ——- Here is a series of exercise we did in the early strengthening. 1️⃣ Sled Pushes - this is for quad activation as I cue her to push through the floor. Additionally, it’s a great exercise for terminal knee extension. 2️⃣ Lunges - we’re keeping it simple by placing the ACL knee in front which is easier. It requires more stability with the repaired knee in back which occasionally causes pain. 3️⃣ Single leg RDLs - great for hamstring and glute strengthening. Additionally, it’s always a plus anytime I can work on single leg stability. ——- 👍 Tag someone who could use this exercise! 🤷🏼‍♂️ Questions or comments?
8 weeks post op tomorrow and met with my surgeon today for a check up. I’ve increased my rom by 10 degrees since last check up- pushing just past 70 degrees now. Been working on building my quad strength back up by doing leg extensions as much as possible because my quad strength is what is making my progress so slow. Will be doing Physio three times this week before going on a 9 day cruise. Gonna keep pushing for that 90 degrees. See my surgeon again in a month 💪🏻 P.s Excuse the facials as I lift 10lbs with two legs haha! FYI I can do 30lbs with my good leg atm! . . #recovery #physiotherapy #tattoos #battlescars #planetfitness #aclrecovery #aclsurgery #aclreconstruction #acltear #mcltear #mclreconstruction #lateralmeniscustear #thetriad #surgery #footballinjury #meniscustear #8weekspostop #roadtorecovery #injury #justdoit #positivevibes #fitchicks #gymmotivation #cantstopwontstop #igotthis #legextension #goals #quads #aclfamily #facials
Hj foi difícil... particularmente difícil! Tá mais difícil administrar a ansiedade de voltar aos esportes do q qualquer outra coisa!!! Dor na perna e no joelho, isso passa... mas pensar q ainda tem 5 meses pela frente, é quase desanimador!!

You have two options: Live a mediocre life OR Create the life you want. . . You could live everyday going through the motions of being average or you could go through life a little deeper creating goals, making connections, traveling, being vulnerable, learning about something new. & not settling for mediocre friends or partners that show up 1/2 the time not 100 percent of the time . Create the life you want. 💯❤️ if you needed this today CREATE IT 🙌🏽 . . #Igfitnesschick #curlyhair #Longhairlatina #latinafitness #gymmotivation #aclsurgery #aclreconstruction #nutritioniskey #IGfitness #genetics #muscleeats #foodforfuel #energyqueen #idlife #idlifemovement #chasinghappiness #physicaltherapyfit #longhairdontcare #longhairforlife #lifestylefitness #macro #fitnesscoach #girlboss #goaldigger #fitcops #bluelinefitness #novababe #fashionblogger
Post op day 87. To say I had an amazing day would be an understatement. I had my 3 month post op appointment with my surgeon this morning where I was told I can ride my horse, run and both of things can be done braceless! He went on to further say I should ween off it some. If in a crowded situation or with unfamiliar people it is sill recommended as a flag for others to be cautious around me. Then I went to see my therapist and was able to have my first post op run! (My videographer was a little spastic 😂). I ran for 8 minutes! It felt amazing! I may get to try it on a regular treadmill Thursday 🤞🏼🤞🏼This journey has been tough mentally and physically, but it’s also been rewarding. For anyone else who is going through this, I just want you to know, it won’t last forever. You’re not defeated. You will get your life back. Don’t let anyone, especially yourself tell you otherwise. Thank you to my amazing Dr. And thank you to Ft Worth physical therapy, I would never have the success I’m having without all of them. #aclreconstruction #aclsurgery #aclrecoveryclub #quadtendongraft #kneebracesareoptional #runningagain #feelingfantastic #ultrag #imightbesoretomorrow #hardworkpaysoffs #strongmom

. ACL Recon Week 25 _______________________ FINALLY NAILED IT 🔨 A lunge speaks a thousand words . Week 25 and finally smashing these lunges. A week of being reminded what pushing myself really feels like curtesy of a @lorna_sportstherapy extra special motivational 5km run 🤣😅and feeling again like I’m getting somewhere! . Jumped on the road bike for the first time in a year 🚲 and quickly saw how easy it is to compensate on a stationery gym bike! Rolled in a great gym session tonight and seeing the benefits and the full activation of the quads during a lunge hold! . See the surgeon this week for the 6 month review and can’t wait to show off the progress 🙌🏻 . ———————————————- #LungingMyWayBackToCourt #ACLReconstruction #ACL #NetballInjuries #ACLRecoveryClub
Operation completed (or so I thought - don't flick through pics if squeamish) I was put into recovery post op, I came round and the pain was so intense I was shaking and after some warm blankets and morphine I was able to ask what was happening with the World Cup games, priorities of course. I then had to spend the rest of the day, the night and the following day in hospital due to me vomiting post surgery when the physio came to make me move. I'm glad I negotiated my pain meds as this first few days was searing. This was my cocktail Paracetamol (for temperature and pain) Ibuprofen (for inflammation) Morphine (for seeing things which aren't there) Cyclizine (for sickness although I still vomitted) Ranitidine (for the stomach acid after vomiting) Tramadol (for the pain and for further hallucinations) Senna (for the fact Tramadol clogs you up) Innohep (I have to inject myself for DVT) No need to eat I'm too full...😂 I was really impressed I could weight bear and kind of walk albeit to the loo and back [Not for the squemish] .... The following day I was released, but before I left I realised something wasn't quite right, my surgery hadn't been completed and my whip stitch cords hadn't been cut correctly and were still protruding from my body, traumatizing, thankfully the staff managed to get everything sorted so I could go home to begin my road to recovery just 1 day behind schedule #ACL #ACL_Recovery_Club #ACLReconstruction #ACLRecovery #ACLRehab #MCL #MeniscusTear #KneeProblems #PositiveThoughts #Referee
🔬📚 5 Years later: ACL Surgery vs. None ℹ️ℹ️ Background: More often than not ACL injury management favors surgical reconstruction. ℹ️ However, long-term outcomes may not differ vs. conservative management. ℹ️ Using a cohort study including patients completing operative and nonoperative treatment of ACL injury, Wellsandt et al. (2018), determined: If differences exist in 5-year functional and radiographic outcomes. ⏱⏱ Methods: 5 years post ACL reconstruction or nonoperative rehabilitation; 105 athletes with an acute ACL rupture completed functional testing: 📈📈 Results: At 5 years, ACL reconstruction patients compared to non-operative rehab; 📈 DID NOT differ in: Quadriceps strength Single-legged hop test performance Activity level Subjective reports of pain, symptoms, ADL’s, or knee-related QOL. Presence of knee OA. . 📈 DID differ in: Greater global ratings of knee function. Lower fear More likely to possess knee joint effusion . 📈 71.1% of ACL reconstruction patients participated in level 1 cutting and pivoting sports prior to injury, vs. 45.55% of non-operative patients. 📈 However, a Norwegian study demonstrated patients able to return to level 1 sports by 1 year: 55% of non-operatively treated patients 62% of operatively treated patients . ↗️↗️ Limitations: Nonoperative group was considerably smaller than the operative group. . ↗️ Not known whether outcomes at 5 years vary in alternative ACL populations. . ↗️ Findings may not be generalizable to more extensive concomitant injuries or are less active in sports activities. . ↗️ Mean age at 5-year testing was 34.3 years, which may not directly relate to high school and college populations. ↗️ Giving-way episodes not reliably tracked during follow-up data collection. . ✅✅ Conclusion: The current findings indicate: Favorable outcomes can occur after both operative and nonoperative management. ✅ Further studies could help to determine the best candidates for surgical versus nonoperative care after ACL injury. . ✅ These findings may improve the educational process regarding expected clinical course and long-term outcomes of ACL injuries. 📚📚📚 SOURCE: Elizabeth Wellsandt et al. 2018.

At the end of my refereeing season July 2017 I fully snapped my ACL and partially tore my MCL. (Damaged previously and was a little bomb waiting to go off) After nearly a year of physio, further set backs and causing more damage to my meniscus; it was finally my turn to get to go to hospital and get it fixed on the 23rd June 2018. (I can't complain there was a lady in there who'd been waiting 18 months, made me grateful mine was just short of a year) Nil by mouth Sunday admission at 7am and told I would be taken down at 9am Let's do this...

After having to pull out of last year's #bridgetobrisbane , then an #aclreconstruction , I'm feeling ready and excited to run it again! (8 months post op!)
Acl reconstruction is like the gift that keeps on giving. The bruising is relentless-fresh bruising on ankle and calf today 15 days on and my leg isn’t tanned-it’s yellow/green bruising from knee to foot! Physio tomorrow and will be asking how much more bruising to expect and when the shin/ankle pain might subside. Not seeing my progress with extension and flexing so not looking forward to degree measurements tomorrow #aclrecovery #aclsurgery #day15postop #leftknee #ligamentdamage #cartilagedamage #meniscustear #meniscussurgery #mcltear #learningtowalkagain #kneesurgery #kneesurgeryrecovery #aclrehab #aclreconstruction
Coming into week 8 post op and progress is moving forward nicely. This is the worst part of my physio and I never look forward to it BUT needs to be done to obtain flexion and range of motion. #aclsurgery #aclrecovery #aclreconstruction #lifemarkphysiotherapy #kombatarts #kombatartstrainingacademy #fitness #martialarts #brampton #mississauga #thismakesmewanttocry

Anyone who tells you that your body goes downhill after 30 is full of shit. That’s when you’re in your PRIME. - If your body is falling apart at 30 (or 40, 50 even) it has far more to do with your bad decisions catching up to you than your age. - Its year and a half since I tore my #ACL ...and the doc just gave me the go ahead for full activity 🙏 - Aside from a bit of #plantarfascitis (which he gave me a night splint for) my body feels better than ever. Stronger, faster...even my nervous system is a finely tuned machine. - Take care of your meat vehicle, it’s the only one you have (until you’re able to transplant your consciousness into a new one 🤔) and for fucks sake if you have knee problems go see a doctor. I know too many people who just power through and end up shuffling like Igor before they’re 50. - Life is good. My body is healthy. Celebrating tonight with a long, sweaty mat session. 💪💦 - - - - - #ACLRecovery #aclsurgery #acltear #kneerecovery #kneesurgery #aclreconstruction #aclrehab #bjjafter30 #lifeafter30 #jiujitsu #bjj #jiujitsuforlife #inmyprime #healthyaf #doctorsvisit #drvisit #matsession #healthyknees #keepmovingforward #elevate #growthanddevelopment #jiujitsuhealthy #jointhealth #kneehealth #humanoptimization #biohacker #bodyoptomization

WHY ITS?! Dr Marc Milia’s why: “I have had the distinct pleasure of working side by side with Anna Napolitano for 15 years. She is passionate about her role in the recovery of her athletes. She understands the mental toughness an athlete needs to return to competition and carefully restores the athletes’ confidence by building mutual trust with them. She has a proven track record returning athletes to sports after career threatening injuries by treating every athlete with a personalized approach. There’s no one more qualified in the Sport Performance arena!” These are just a few of the athletes we’ve helped in the past 15 years! @sameertayeb_ @alexsherlock @__dimpleezz @myanixole @d1_hooper00 @nickcacicedo @erin_fishh #ACL #ACLTear #ACLReconstruction #KneeInjury #ACLSurgery #ACLComeback #Basketball #Soccer #Football #Hockey #ITSACLStrong
• DAY 19 POST OP • . Apart from my little drive via the gym, all I’ve done today is rest and ice. I find if I don’t do any walking my calves get sore so off we went out to the local reservoir where I smashed a 2km walk. The video is at the end and I’m not happy with my walking style at this point. My physiotherapist told me to concentrate on my heel to toe movement so that’s what I tried to do. . We are having unusual hot weather at the moment where the grass is all parched and some huge cracks have appeared in the ground. It’s so hot that an ice cream was definitely calling 🍦 . #kneeinjury #ligaments #aclrupture #kneedamage #skiaccident #kneerecovery #medialligament #theaclclub #aclrepair #hamstringgraft #aclrecovery #acldamage #medialplicaexcion #chlondroplasty #kneeprobs #kneeproblems #rupturedACL #aclreconstruction #acloperation #aclop #aclrecon #grade3tearMCL #MCLtear #prehab #physiotherapy #kneephysio #walking

DAY 14 - 2 WEEKS POST OP ☑️ With my huge hospital setback, I’m no where near where I’d like to be. Things have actually gotten worse. My blood cultures are still going up which is worrying when I’m on IV antibiotics and they aren’t bringing them down. Currently they’re at 288 and mine need to be at least 100 until I can go home 😞 I have blood tests every day to check, alongside IV antibiotics 4 times a day and constant obs checking. ➖ Heel slides are HIDEOUS. It makes me so mad that they’ve gotten so bad compared to how they were before hospital. Flexion is obviously a lot better than extension. Extension is super painful. I can’t bare trying to push it down but I’m trying to do it anyway. Hopefully it gets better 🤞🏼 ➖PT saw me today. Gave me a little donut to help with my heel slides but didn’t actually examine me or spend any more time with me which worries me so I’ve brought it up to the nurse. My doctor says I need to be doing more and it frustrates me because I’m trying to push myself but it hurts so bad and I’ve had no physio. I can’t ice my knee so I can’t reduce swelling.➖ I’ve included the video of my heel slides, I know they’re bad for 2 weeks post op but that’s what I’ve got. Also I’ve been trying to walk without crutches in my hospital room, that’s interesting 😂 ➖ Managed to smile a little today. My brother came to visit me and was having a great time with my bed. #aclsurgery #meniscectomy #aclreconstruction #aclclub #kneeproblems #meniscusrecovery #aclrecovery #aclrehab #kneeproblems #pain #setback
Congratulations to @okbecs_ on her awesome 8/9 performance yesterday! She worked hard during her prep and it all came together on the platform- she put 70 pounds on her total since we started together! Honestly though, the best part of the whole thing was the look on her face all day, especially after her first squat and again after her name being called for her first medal (how cute is she in all those pictures after the first? 😭). She literally had this huge, genuine smile on her face all day. I love watching people fall in love with this sport. Glad I got to be a small part of it! 💙 #demileighfitness #onlinecoaching #remotecoaching #powerlifter #powerlifting #usapl #orlando

Week 12. Gym session. Step up and downs are improving - put some blocks under the step today. Still can't use the rower without my knee cap going clunk but did good bike, cross trainer and weights session. Had pain around the shin screw point the last week but its largely manageable. Certainly feel like I've turned a little bit of a corner. #aclrehab #aclrecovery #aclreconstruction

Post op day 54! Since I ditched the brace last week, I’ve been at the gym almost everyday working on strengthening my leg. I’m definitely enjoying the brace free lifestyle! Yesterday I went on a little road trip with some friends for the afternoon and enjoyed a game of mini golf. This morning I saw my surgeon as I’ll be 2 months post op next week. Surgeon was impressed and said everything is looking great 😊 He also referred me back to my original physiotherapist that I was seeing before my surgery so I’m pretty happy about that. Since surgery I’ve just been going to a government funded facility as it was free, but in the long run I won’t get as good of treatment for my injury. #aclreconstruction #acltear #aclstrong #aclrehab #aclrecoveryclub #aclinjury #aclfam
Before you PT, remember to give those knees some love. Patella rotations in both directions, Vitamin E application with scar tissue massage: I like to count to 15, then move to the next scar (11 scars takes a lot of massaging) and some knee kisses. This injury might have sat me down but it will not hold me back. I am on the lazy river ride, enjoying where the injury has and continues to take me, I’m learning a lot about myself and trying hard to create new routine. I could let the things I’m currently unable to do weight me down or I could celebrate the things I can and rejoice in the small victories. This injury not a set back, it’s an on the job training for a life lesson in humbleness. #AndNowIHaveVitaminEOnMyLips #KneeLove #PatellaCare #KneeKisses #Kisses #YouAreNotYourInjury #StayHumble #BuiltBySacrifice #PatellaTracking @jmrac0323 @binbpt ✖️ #SimultaneousBilateral #ACLreconstruction #ACL #Allograft #DonorLigaments #Cadaver #BilateralMeniscusRepair #MeniscusRepair #TheFlintMachine #TheIronMaiden #FlintStrong #CurlyHairMagic #BeatTheOdds ✖️ Music by: @nicolaymusic - AfterGlow
So on this day 4 years ago I got an MRI on my right knee after being bumped while I was in the air and landing on my right foot as I was favouring my recently reconstructed left knee... and then came the devastating news that I had done a second ACL. Today Nic Nat also received the deviating news that he has done his right ACL after recently coming back after his left ACL recon, too. I gave up footy after my second ACL... with left and right hamstring tendons sacrificed to replace the torn ACLS, I had no choice but to give up the sport I loved so much. Will Nic Nat have to do the same? I sure as hell hope not. I hope he sees my physio to get the treatment I’m getting now, because he could be back out on the footy field in a year! The advice from the old fashioned Eagles physios clearly isn’t working!!!!!
; HEY GENG! Sorry for the late post for I have been busy! Exercise post is here for week 15 (typo in the text) and it’s all about increasing volume. . My sessions with my physio lately have been more about repeating older moves than doing newer ones. The repeat of exercises indicates to me that My physio feels that I am ready to push forward in my trainings, which ultimately tells me that I am progressing. . #acl #aclsurgery #aclrecovery #acltear #aclrehab #acljournal #aclreconstruction #comebackstronger #strongertogether #lookbetter #showyourscars #brunei #bruneiacl

*DAY 27* WALKING WITHOUT CRUTCHES (well, practising 😉) Practice makes perfect! Because it’s still far from perfect yet. I naturally have muscley legs for a girl, it runs in the family/from playing sport from a very young age. But muscle atrophy has turned them to flab 😔. So once I’m back at it I will be getting rid of that! I’ve fallen off the healthy eating train a little, I was 10lbs down since my surgery but I’ve put 3-4 back on 😡 so back to it this week 💪🏻 Today I am having a relaxing day doing followed by a rehab and arm session later in the gym! #aclrecovery #aclsurgery #aclfamily #aclrupture #aclrehab #aclreconstruction #hockeyinjury #comeback
D:185 ✓ 37km bike 🚴💨 #pfffffart Weekend! I sleep in but don't loiter about. Breakie, thesis and I'm getting a haircut at last🙏. As a teacher and social scientist I'm fully aware how ridiculous it is, but I didn't cut my hair for, what, over 9 months? Not to lose strength like Samson did 🙄 #superstition #folktales . I feel the most frustrating phase is over now, so off to new haircuts 😂. * We set up a bike ride with our buddy Fried Tomato🤘 for the afternoon, to dust off the local trails 🚴. Having my boys around means no slacking, but no stops for pictures either 😂. We power on, no open race, but we egg each other on anyway #tomboymonkey 🐒. We power on through the fields, play on the red “river trail”, and power on some more on the gravel road round the quarry, home-bound. I'm so HAPPY, because I'm not falling behind and on that gravel road I power on right with my guys averaging 25.5 km/h MTB and then sneakingly overtake them just before Klecanky 🤘🙌 #suckers #eatmydustšulíni 🤘. I deserve a 🍺 #thanksguys 😂😘. Those last 2km home with a 100m elevation is a piece of cake🍰! * Happy observation no. 2: I'm not hesitant on the bike anymore, even if I'm not back to that easy ride yet. Places where the weekend warriors get off and push (esp. ladies), I don't think about it twice, I just ride it down navigating the rocks and obstacles (people). Feels good to know I still got balance 🙌. And I shred where I can, today’s max was “just” 48 km/h (pavement). * At home I stretch and flex, I’m still missing a few degrees on both ext/flex to be symmetrical. I hope I still have some time to work on it though, so I push #ouchie #ohwell . We lay about, watch football and it’s a good game. I come across a @rehabscience post on sciatic nerve mobilisation, give it a try and yup, it’s the nerve that bugs me at the back of my knee/front of the shin and switches my leg off when irritated 💡. I’ll give those mobilisations a try. Can’t hurt, right?

• DAY 19 POST-OP • Today I made it to the gym. It’s actually quite an effort to go as I’m travelling longer than I’m actually exercising in the gym. #villagelifeproblems The bike 🚲 felt good. I don’t want to aggravate the knee so I’m going slowly build up the endurance: today I started with 8 minutes and then I left 😂. . My scars are healing up well. The surgeon said I can go to the pool for some hydrotherapy but my scar is currently kicking out the ‘dissolvable’ stitches. An end works it’s way out then I give it a little tug and 2cm of stitch comes out! I think there’s only one more to go now. I wish it would hurry up as I’d love to go in the pool. . #kneeinjury #ligaments #aclrupture #kneedamage #skiaccident #kneerecovery #medialligament #theaclclub #aclrepair #hamstringgraft #aclrecovery #acldamage #medialplicaexcion #chlondroplasty #kneeprobs #kneeproblems #rupturedACL #aclreconstruction #acloperation #aclop #aclrecon #grade3tearMCL #MCLtear #prehab #physiotherapy #kneephysio

#HappyMonday - first sub-9min mile since the baby and #aclreconstruction ✌🏻🏃🏼‍♀️ #slowrunner #slowlybutsurely #earlymorning #kesha #picoritdidnthappen
HAPPY MONDAY! Time to achieve some new goals. Today I started introducing some weight into my squats. It was just a 10kg plate but did that get my heart rate up or what?! I just did 2 sets of 10 which all felt good, but I didn’t want to push my luck by doing anymore today...! That was a lesson in just how unfit I’ve got again after my second surgery, but we’ll get there...! 🤞 It’s all progress.... As usual swipe if you want to see the action..... #recovery #meniscectopy #kneeinjury #sportsinjury #surgery #physio #meniscustear #acl #aclreconstruction #aclsurgery #aclrecovery #aclfamily #kneeprobs #kneeproblems #physiotherapy #fitfam #stability #training #aclclub #progression #fitness #healthylife #gymlife #workoutmotivation #fitnessmotivation #activelife #sportsrehab #workout #proprioception #healthylife

🔹POST OP ACL RECONSTRUCTION AND MENISCECTOMY DAY 59 WEEK 9 🔹 .. ➡️Since I was down with the flu all weekend my knee rested properly and my swelling went down 😊 ➡️I am really struggling with my gait - I need to swing my leg out a bit in order to walk otherwise something in my knee catches 😔 ➡️Next appointment with Dr and physio is tomorrow and I can't wait to find out what is going on with my knee and why I struggle to walk properly 😌 ➡️I've completely ditched the crutches and only use them when we go to the shops or mall 🛍️ ➡️I've practiced walking without my brace at home and I'm not struggling as much as I thought I would, it actually feels kinda nice and relieving 😍 ➡️I've added more crunches to my exercise routine and also started doing a small cardio workout at lunch time every day (I follow wikiHow - how to exercise with a broken leg - excluding the last tummy exercise since it hurts my knee) 🏋🏻 ➡️I'm starting to feel more like myself and that is great! 😎 .. 💝 This is a process and it is all worth it - don't give up - you can do it! 💝 .. #acl #acltear #aclclub #aclfamily #aclreconstruction #aclsurgery #aclrecovery #menisectomy #meniscusrecovery #recovery #postop #week9 #day58 #progress #process #youcandoit #pushthrough #dontgiveup
2 months post full ACL reconstruction. I can now squat 80kg. Pretty happy with that progress. ✓Better movement ✓No Pain ✓Feeling Strong ✓Confident with its function It's not been easy but it was definitely worth it and it's been a real education both mentally and physically and has really challenged me in every way. Sometimes life's throws disasters, turn them into lessons. Feeling grateful #punkfitnessuk #aclrecovery #aclreconstruction #progress #mindset #positivevibes #gains 💪 #personaltrainer #elysiumedinburgh #fitnessmotivation #powerofmind #spireedinburgh
Having been awake from 2:30am, I would usually have gone for a run 🏃‍♀️ clearly not an option at the moment 😂 so I went for a walk at 5:45. 2km through the village 🏘 and through the woods 🌳 in the rain 🌧 appreciating the beautiful place where we live ❤️ now home for some ice ❄️ and a cup of tea ☕️ . . . #aclclub #aclreconstruction #aclrehab #aclrecoveryclub #awakeearly #bighairdontcare #woods #woodland #scotland #edinburgh #edinburghlife #waterofleith #nature #cowparsley #trees #scottishsummer #summer #rain #summerrain #exercise #sportsinjury #surgery #kneesurgery

23 Days Post ACL knee replacement surgery and smiling more than ever🌈 . 🌎the vicissitudes of life…we are all either in a storm or about to be in a storm, for me the last 8 weeks have been a wild life changing physical and emotional storm… I want to share my story now that I am through the worst of it, because it is such common injury, and also one that over 50% of people never recover from fully😆 It has been more painful than I could have imagined, but just 3 weeks post surgery I am finding a new love and more appreciation for my body than I have ever had, we are resilient, and the mind is a powerful tool.🔥 . I know lots of people are wondering why I am still in Hawaii, and not LA. 10 days before my move date, I had a horrible accident and tore all of the ligaments in my knee, ouch. I entered a community of people I never could have foreseen...chronic pain, surgery, and a long road to recovery. ..🌴 As I do with things i am passionate about, I immediately immersed myself into learning everything there is to know about ACL injuries and how athletes recover. I spent 5 weeks pushing through the pain with “Prehab” and dialed in my self-care like never before. I chose a Patellar Tendon Autograft for my reconstruction. I am way ahead of where I anticipated being in my recovery, and while its just the beginning, I am both patient and determined. 5 days after surgery I returned to the gym and I believe it has made all the difference for me. 💡 . If you or someone you know is preparing or recovering from surgery, message me for info about: ● adjusting your caloric intake to accommodate injury (how I avoided weight gain with no cardio for 8 weeks!)⚖️ ● Holistic approaches to pain management🌱 ● Intermittent fasting for healing and repair🌛 ● Anti-inflammatory diets for injury recovery✨ ● Self-massage and myofascial release🏋🏽‍♀️ ● Habits and routines for overcoming emotional stress during injury🌪 . #acl #aclrecovery #aclsurgery #aclreconstruction #aclrehab #acltear #hawaiifitness#weightlosscoach #weightlosstransformation #onlinecoach #nutritionist #inspire #ketodiet #keto #surgeryrecovery #cleaneating #instafit #journeytohealth
5 weeks out from ACL reconstruction round 2 and has hitting a few pitches. I made sure not to have any weight going thru my left knee.
