In this webinar Kieran talks about his personal journey with ACL tear management and his change in practice towards assessing for ACL healing capacity.
In the webinar he covers:
- Historical views of ACL management
- Mass media/Google views
- Pathophysiology of healing/types of healing
- Current literature suggesting ACL tears can heal
- Case study examples
- Advice and recommendations
- Opportunities and challenges
- Time for questions and answers
By the end of this webinar you will understand:
- Current research base for ACL healing
- What to advise patients soon after their ACL injury
