August Patient of the month, Alexander
Updated: Sep 12
Alexander had a right ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repair done by Mr Paul Trikha after rupturing it playing football.
Alexander had a lot of bleeding after the surgery and experienced a haematoma over his hamstring where the ACL graft was taken from. Within 9 days of Kinesio taping by Colin Hill the haematoma improved significantly and he could manage to start the rehabilitation of his injury.
He is currently in the first 6 weeks post-surgery with the focus on decreasing swelling, restoring the joint mobility, muscle strength and general mobility.
There is still a long time to full recovery and return to play but with the guidance of the Ultra Sports Clinic team Alexander will be back on the football field.
Well done and thank you for the dedication, Alexander!
