ACL repair- knee instability

Postby Maddox » Thu Oct 06, 2011 3:16 pm

A 12 year old female who is s/p acl repair, is currently at -2 degrees of extension with empty end feel due to guarding. She occasionally has instances when her affected knee buckles, at random- sometimes even while she is simply standing. She has no c/o pain, or neurogenic symptoms. Any ideas?

How is her stability? Hip and ankle normal?
