24 year old, male, Japanese
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.

39 years old, male, American
On 27-9-2020, he injured his right knee during playing basketball. On 8-10-2020, he took the first MRI, and the diagnosis was

Complete ACL tear
LCL tear

He started the Online Therapy with Jun Matsumoto from 17-10-2020 and continued Jun’s special rehab exercises for 6 months. The following two MRI pictures were taken on 17-04-2021.

In my experience, this is the first case of which the torn ACL healed in the abnormal position. The inferior remnant of the torn ACL attached not to the superior remnant but to the lateral wall of the notch or the medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle in a position anterior and distal to the ACL anatomic footprint. I will follow up this case up to a year, and I will show here how this torn ACL changes its form finally. After 7 months from the injury, he can have normal daily activities, but still have a little pain on LCL.

On October 23rd,2020, he injured his left knee during playing basketball. The MRI pictures were taken on October 29, and the diagnosis was a complete tear of ACL.

He started the Online Therapy with Jun Matsumoto from November 20, 2020 and continued Jun’s special rehab exercises for 4 months. He took the second MRI on April 11, 2021 at the same hospital, and the diagnosis was:

complete tear of the posterior bundle of ACL.
anterior bundle of ACL is intact.

The complete tear of whole ACL became as the partial tear in 5 months, even though the doctor never admitted the natural healing of torn ACL. He implied that the first diagnosis might be a misdiagnosis. The following is the second MRI, and I confirmed that the natural healing has been going on.

After having continued the Evo-Devo exercises with Jun Matsumoto for 4 months, the complete range of motion of the left knee was recovered, he could have the normal daily activity without pain. Now, he is still working out to return to play basketball.
