ACL reconstructions are on the rise up 70%.  200,000 of these operations have been preformed since 2000-2015. 

In a recent controlled study over a five year period, it was found that there was no difference in the rehabilitated knee in comparison to the ACL reconstructed knee. 

This encourages further rehabilitation treatment and methods over invasive surgery.

So what is a ACL?

  • The anterior cruciate ligament is an important ligament that helps stabilise your knee
  • Torn ACLs can cause the knee to collapse when trying to twist or turn
  • Repairing torn ACLs typically requires replacement tissue from somewhere else in the body

 

What sports/activities are high risk?

  • Netball
  • AFL & Rugby
  • Soccer 

 

Is this preventable?

Yes,with strengthening the muscle around the knee and regular agility programs focusing on the body movement.

Modern technology has caused an increase in people seeking chiropractic treatment, specifically with teenagers.

At Mullumbimby Chiropractic we have also noticed this increase in younger people requiring treatment. 

Long hours of screen time in the same position is resulting in a growing number of people experiencing; neck pain, poor posture and headaches.

 

The following article from channel 10 has suggestions for management and statistical discussion of this topic.

Matthew graduated with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Masters in Chiropractic in 2004, and then spent two years practicing on the Gold Coast before moving to London to pursue an opportunity in one of the UK’s most exclusive practices. Here he treated high profile patients alongside an integrated team of highly regarded medical and allied health professionals.

Drawn back to Australia, Matt returned to private practice and an academia position in Sydney, lecturing and tutoring within Macquarie University’s Chiropractic Master’s Degree program in the fields of orthopaedics, sports chiropractic, spinal rehabilitation and advanced patient management. He also conducted performance training consultation and injury management for local athletes and sporting clubs.

During an informal two-year sabbatical from 2013, Matt furthered his training and education in the field of massage and muscle release therapies before returning to the beautiful Gold Coast where he practices what he refers to as Contemporary Chiropractic Care from The Living Well Studio.

Matt typically takes an evidence-based sports model of chiropractic care, which has been shown to be very effective in treating both athletes and those not so athletically inclined. Matt expects to see improvements quickly and commonly uses techniques such as diversified spinal manipulation, drop table techniques, joint mobilisation, stretch, massage, soft tissues release, cranial therapy, active release technique, stabilisation exercises, Sacro Occipital technique blocking, strength training and athletic performance training.
