The Rehabilitation Specialist
Can you guess who’s knee this is
This knee X-Ray happens to belong to our very own Coach Mel from 2 years ago. Notice anything strange about where the Patella (knee cap) is sitting.... well if you can’t spot it... it’s sitting far too high for normal function.
Coach Mel was diagnosed with Patella alta 2 years ago which means the knee cap sits higher than it should and is prince to dislocation and locking. In Mel’s case due to high activity from such a long age and developing over developed Quads (thigh muscles to most of us) and is pulling the knee cap up and sideways which makes the knee highly unstable and swollen. So what did Coach Mel do...
Coach Mel has vast amounts of knowledge in rehabilitation which she wants to filter down to the members for both prehab and rehab. Giving you ways to work around injuries and niggles, from taping, straps massage and physical therapy so make sure you book an appointment to use her knowledge.
