Case Study Of Ms. Mcmanaman's Physical Therapy

Satisfactory Essays

Ms. McManaman has completed her physical therapy. On 5/24/17 I met her at the office of Dr. Drayer. She reports that she has no pain to the right knee. She denies any locking or giving out of the knee. Examination showed that the hamstring had regained good range, the extension was weak though. She denied any real resumption of her normal physical activity like running. She continued to wear the leg brace when she was at work removing it while at her home. Dr. Drayer said she is at risk for re-injuring the knee if it gives out. He told her she could leave it be but will have premature arthritis. Or she could have the ACL repaired using a graft from her Patella tendon. She wants to have it repaired so she can resume more physical activities.
