This week I took two days out to train international delegates on my technique for reconstructing the ACL and ALL (Antero Lateral Ligament) using only the hamstrings tendons of the injured leg.

An ACL reconstruction is needed for people who have had a knee injury and torn, (or ruptured, which has the same meaning) the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The ACL is the key structure responsible for stopping the knee giving way during twisting and pivoting activities. If the knee is giving way or feeling unstable after an injury you may well need an ACL reconstruction.

The anterolateral ligament (ALL) is a ligament on the outside of the knee that contributes to stopping the knee giving way. It is commonly torn at the same time as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in a sports injury, but most surgeons ignore it and only fix the ACL.

Plantar fasciitis is a common injury, but in the past, it tended to be underdiagnosed and there were few non-invasive treatments available. In recent years, however, treatment options have improved dramatically.

Hoffa’s syndrome, otherwise known as infrapatellar fat pad impingement, is a problem which causes pain at the front of the knee (anterior knee pain). It is due to inflammation in the fat pad of the knee or Hoffa’s fat pad. It is a very common cause of anterior knee pain, but one that is very often misdiagnosed, or not diagnosed at all. Very commonly, people get told by their doctor that they have 'anterior knee pain', which just means pain at the front of the knee - but the patient knows that!
