    Hi ItsmeJPaulC, If your physiotherapist is specialised in sports, then you can probably trust him. Return to sport is possible if you train up your agility, strength and endurance gradually. You may not be 100%, but maybe close depends on your condition. However, you are still more at risk now than you were before the injury. Your knee will also degenerate quicker compare to your other leg, because of your past injury. How serious do you play football? like professionally? or just causal?...

    It just come to my mind that maybe there is some kind of muscle imbalance around the clavicle? causing it the subluxation. Try search for a picture of "clavicle muscle attachment" picture. You can see the position of these muscles: subclavius; deltoid; trapezius and sternocleidomastoid. If one or more muscle is habitually pulling more than it needs to, it could exert unnecessary force onto the sternoclavicular joint. Due to your history of lifting weights, you may have developed excessive...

The main findings were: Osteochondral damage Complex tear of lateral meniscus The following month I had an arthroscopic meniscectomy carried out to which the lateral meniscus was repaired. Upon my one month check-up with the surgeon he noted that there was a complex tear of my articular cartilage present- approximately 2cm in diameter. He was quite...

    I went to visit a private physio recently, and he completely negated a lot of what i'd been told in the past by previous therapists. He said that for somebody who has complex muscle imbalances, in the body if you train the BIG muscles such as glutes, hamstrings, quads etc, then the smaller postural muscles will follow. From you experiences as practitioners, how true is this? Is there a place for all the wishy washy movements that clients are often told to do like pelvic floor exercises or...

    I wanted to post another follow up. It's been over two years since the onset of my initial symptoms. I was diagnosed with a syrinx in my neck, and a smaller one in my lower back. The good: My body has adapted the best it can to the new circumstances. The soft flabby pectoral and tricep on my right side are better, and flexing them no longer results in immediate cramping. I look and feel more symmetrical and when flexing my right pec it now behaves almost the same as the left. I'm able...

    I am undergoing prolotherapy now. In 2 weeks time I will have fourth injection. I do feel improvement, it skips much less but is still painfull. My SC joint is a bit lower than the healthy one and I am thinking about mobilisation or manual manipulation to enncourage it into correct position. Something skips in my arm as well and it certainly is connected with the problem in SC joint (started together) but MRI shows nothing abnormal in my shoulder. I whish it had never happened but well.....If...

    Hi Agnes, Unfortunately I didn't try any further therapy to fix the problem. I simply keep working out while paying attention. I often feel some light inflammation in the area coming from the instability and the bone-against-bone rubbing. This might provoke arthritis in the long term and I should probably be careful. Good luck with your search ! I'm interested if you find something effective
