Soccer Player Knee Case Study
Today we completed treatment on a 31-year-old male soccer player who injured his left knee four years ago while playing soccer.
He complained of a constant pain in the back of his knee with bending and had a pain score of 10/10. He had no improvement with exercise, massage and over-the-counter medications.
We examined his knee with ultrasound and determined that he had a small fluid collection in the area close to the region of a Baker’s cyst along the margin of the posterior meniscus of the knee.
I started treating him with prolotherapy for two sessions and we drained and broke up the cyst with ultrasound.
I then hydrodissected the nerve, under ultrasound guidance, along the posterior knee that was trapped in muscle.
By the end of the last treatment today, which was a total of three, the patient’s pain was down to 0/10.
This case study exemplifies the benefit of an accurate diagnosis using manual and ultrasound guided techniques to eliminate a chronic pain problem.
