31 year old, male, Japanese On September 20th, 2021, he was playing badminton, and when he landed on his left knee from jumping, he twisted it. Two weeks later, he went to the MRI scanning, and the diagnosis was: Complete ACL tear 31 year old, male, Japanese On September 20th, 2021, he was playing badminton, and when he landed on his left knee from jumping, he twisted it. Two weeks later, he went to the MRI scanning, and the diagnosis was: Complete ACL tear
On October 28th,2021, he started the online therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear with Jun Matsumoto. He continued doing the Evo-Devo Exercises for four months, and he took the next MRIs on February 25,2022.
The MRI report indicates:
Partial ACL tear
By comparing the MRIs of 2021/10/05 and 2022/02/25, the torn ACL starts healing spontaneously and growing intact. The torn ACL is still in healing process, and Jun Matsumoto ordered him to continue doing he Evo-Devo EX until the continuation of the ACL becomes more firm. The patient recovered the full range of motion of the left knee, and he doesn’t feel any instability of the knee. He can walk normally and have the normal daily activities so far.
12 years old, male, Indian On September 20th, 2021, during leg curl strength test due to carelessness of the doctor, his right knee got injured. Mri report indicates: complete tear of the proximal segment bundle of the acl. Grade 3 sprain is also seen involving proximal segment and femoral attachment with increased signal. Tbl attachments /pcl are intact. Intact collaterals, posteromedial and posterolateral corners, menisci.
On October 22nd,2021, he started the online therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear with Jun Matsumoto. He continued doing the Evo-Devo Exercises for four months, and he took the next MRIs on March 2nd,2022.
The MRI report indicates: Proximal segment of the anterior cruciate ligament appears vertically oriented flush with the medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle and shows iso to slightly hyperintense signal on both T1 and T2-weighted images. Intact tibial attachments of both anteromedial and posterolateral bundles.
Although some tissues of the torn ACL are growing intact to the medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle, the proximal femoral attachment is intact. Spontaneousl healing of the torn ACL is occuring on the new MRI, and Jun Matsumoto permitted him to start doing more intense exercises so that he could retrun to playing the tennis.
He is the youngest patient who spontaneously healed from the ACL tear by Evo-Devo Exercises. In most cases, the surgeries for patients in chilhood are avoided because of the risk of imparing their bone growth. There has not been any appropriate medication for juvenile patients with ACL tears. The Evo-Devo Exercises can be the hope for the patients in childhood, and more successful cases can be accumulated and studied.
Patient information: 72-year old, Male, Japanese On May 1st, 2021, when he was climbing the mountain, he stepped off and fell down. On the same day, he was taken to the hospital, and his right knee was scanned for the MRI. The diagnosis was ACL complete tear
On May 14th he started the therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear through the online session with Jun Matsumoto. He continued to have the session once a week for 4 months. On May 14th he started the therapy for the natural healing of the ACL tear through the online session with Jun Matsumoto more than one hour every day. Because of his age, it was doubtful that the torn ACL would heal spontaneously. But, he never used his age as an excuse. He went to the hospital and took the new MRI 4 months from starting the natural therapy. Fortunately, it was found that the torn ACL were healing naturally and had its continuation. Jun permitted him to do the more intense exercises. This man hopes that he can climb the mountain again, and Jun will continue to help him.
Patient information: 16-year old, Male, Japanese On March 21st, 2021, he twisted his left knee by his own movement during playing the handball. Next day, he was taken to the hospital, and his left knee was scanned for the MRI. The diagnosis was ACL complete tear Medial meniscus tear
He visited Jun Matsumoto`s Natural Therapy Office, and started the evo-devo exercises for the natural healing of the ACL tear. He has visited there once a week for 4 months and has continued the exercises every day at home. He took the MRI at the different hospital on September 4th, and it was found that the torn ACL was healing naturally. Jun Matsumoto permitted him to do jogging and start the more intense exercises. In next 3 months, he will return to playing the handball in athletic level.
When I was running on September 28th, I twisted my left knee again. On the same day, he underwent an MRI scan at the hospital and was diagnosed with anterior cruciate ligament rupture. After several days of rest, he resumed spontaneous healing of the re-ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
Evo-Devo Exercise was performed for another 3 months, and MRI imaging was taken again.
The continuity of the anterior cruciate ligament, as confirmed by MRI on September 4, 2021, could not be clearly confirmed. It was confirmed that the tibial stump of the anterior cruciate ligament adhered to the posterior cruciate ligament. The patient had no symptoms such as knee collapse and was functionally recovering satisfactorily, so he agreed to continue conservative therapy. The exercise intensity was gradually increased, and MRI imaging was performed again on March 5, two months later.
Unfortunately, the continuity of the anterior cruciate ligament was not confirmed this time either. In the future, he agreed to further increase his exercise intensity and observe the progress while aiming to return to the competition.
Consideration: Although he healed naturally once from his anterior cruciate ligament rupture, he suffered a re-rupture and his spontaneous healing of the re-rupture was unsuccessful. The cause of his re-rupture cannot be clearly pointed out, but there were two points of concern. One was that the start of spontaneous healing therapy was late, 7 weeks after the injury. During that period, the range of motion was restricted by the orthotic device and supporters, so that the flexion restriction remained even during the period from the start of treatment to the spontaneous healing. The second is that the MRI, which confirmed the spontaneous healing on September 4, did not indicate that it was a beautiful natural healing yet, and that it was a deformed healing that seems to have adhered to the posterior cruciate ligament. My personal impression is that ligament adhesions may have occurred in an environment with limited range of motion during the 7 weeks leading up to the start of treatment. Even if the anterior cruciate ligament rupture heals spontaneously, there is a possibility of re-rupture after that, and how to prevent it is a future proposition.
