On December 20th, 2020, he injured his right knee during playing basketball. The MRI pictures were taken on December 21, 2020, and the diagnosis was a complete tear of ACL.
He started the actual therapy with Jun Matsumoto from January 15, 2021 and continued Jun’s special rehab exercises for 4 months. He took the second MRI on May 29, 2021 at the different hospital, and the diagnosis was:
The ACL is intact.
This is the one of the slices of the MRIs taken on May 29,2021.
It is very clear that the torn ACL has healed naturally. You don’t have to be a specialist of radiology to see this beautiful natural healing by the picture. After seeing the natural healing of the ACL tear, Jun Matsumoto teaches him to start strengthening the muscles for preparing to return to the sport. He hasn’t been strengthening the muscles until the torn ACL became intact on the MRIs as Jun suggested. He canceled the surgery after seeing the natural healing of the ACL tear by the MRIs.
