Natural Healing of a Complete ACL Tear – Case 18

ACL Online Therapy for natural healing

ACL tears heal without surgery

Patient information:

34 year old, male, Filipino living in Japan
He injured his right knee during playing Baskaetball on October 24th, 2021. When he changed the direction by loading this weight on the right knee, he twisted the right knee, and he fell down. One week later, he went to the MRI scanning, and the diagnosis was:
Complete ACL tear
Lateral Meniscus tear

On November 11, 2021, he started the face to face therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear with Jun Matsumoto. He continued doing the Evo-Devo Exercises for five months, and he took the next MRI on April 30,2022.

The MRI report indicates:

Minor tear on ACL but there is the continuity.
Lateral Meniscus tear

Future prospects:

Even though the lateral meniscus still remains, the torn ACL has almost healed naturally by its own. Jun Matsumoto ordered him to spend the normal daily life activity without doing any sport for a few months. They agreed to see how it works later. If the unhealed meniscus impairs the knee in the future, the option for the surgery can be taken.
