Natural Healing of a Complete ACL Tear – Case 21

ACL Online Therapy for natural healing

ACL tears heal without surgery

Patient information:

41 years old, Female, American
She injured her left knee during skiing on February 4th, 2022. On February 10th, she went to the MRI scanning, and the diagnosis was:

Complete ACL tear

On February 27, 2022, she started the online therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear with Jun Matsumoto. She continued doing Evo-Devo Exercises for four months, and she took the next MRI on July 5th, 2022.

MRI reports:

Modest signs of suffering are detectable in the anterior cruciate ligament which appears slightly reduced in thickness in the middle-distal III with an inhomogeneous signal that tends to be hyperintense in the T2-weighted sequences for slight edematous imbibition with characteristics compatible with the outcomes of a “strain” suffering with probable parcel laceration and persistence of a tenuous edematous suffering of the residual ligament; the ligamentous structure however remains clearly visible along its entire course with modest surrounding synovial thickening and periligamentous liquid layer in the distal insertion tract.

Future prospects:

According to the report above, the torn ACL starts healing naturally, and it will take a while until healing process ends. Jun Matsumoto permitted her to practice the full range of motion of the affecyed knee and start strengthen the quadriceps muscles. Even though she still feels weakness on the affected knee, there is no othere complication in her daily life activities. Further more, she will contines the Evo-Devo Exercises and strength exercises until she gets ready to return to skiing.
