ACL reconstruction is surgery to rebuild the ligament in the center of your knee. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect one bone to another. The ACL connects your thighbone to your shinbone and helps stabilize your knee joint. Most ACL injuries happen during sports or other physical activities. The ligament may tear when you slow down suddenly to change direction or pivot with your foot firmly planted, twisting or overextending your knee. Collisions with other athletes can also result in an ACL tear. A torn ACL cannot be sewn back together, so the ligament is replaced with a piece of tendon from another part of your leg or from a donor. This surgery is usually performed through small incisions around your knee joint using a small scope to guide the placement of the ACL graft.
Often, low back pain occurs due to overuse, strain, or injury. This can include sprains or strains of soft tissues (ligaments and muscles), fractures or compression fractures of bones or injuries to the small joints between the bones of the spine. It could be caused by too much bending, twisting, lifting or even too much sitting.
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the brain to shake inside the skull. You do not have to lose consciousness to have a concussion and often there are no immediate visible signs that one has occurred.
Physical Therapy and Pregnancy
During pregnancy a woman undergoes many physiological changes. As your body expands to accommodate the needs of your growing baby, you may experience pain. Studies have found that 50-70% of pregnant women experience low back pain, especially during the late stages of pregnancy.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
