This rock star nominee came to Liberty PT in November for evaluation of left knee pain following a noncontact hyperextension injury sustained at soccer practice two weeks prior. The patient is a competitive soccer player on one of Cincinnati’s elite club teams. MRI revealed a partially torn ACL on her non-dominant leg. After arriving to PT at TTWB status, patient worked diligently week in and week out to normalize her gait, strengthen her legs and core, and improve her sport-specific mechanics. The patient never missed a PT session, even coming in while sitting out on her family’s ski trip out west over the holidays. She was so invested in her rehab that she began speaking in PT terms, often commenting on how much she’s been working on correction of her “valgus.” She could often be found wowing other therapists and patients with her ability to demonstrate incredible ball control with her feet during advanced rehab tasks. Three and a half months after her injury, she rejoined her soccer team and is currently working her way to full participation and domination of the soccer pitch!
