Kristyn's ACL Story

by Kristyn
(New York)

I remember the night clearly. It must have been the worst night of my life. It was 5 days before my 15th birthday in January and I was playing in a basketball game for my high school's team. We were playing one of those rough teams who didn't have a lot of talent but were very aggressive and had a lot of attitude. The game was almost over and this one girl from the opposite team and I were playing very rough on each other.


We knew we were going to win due to the fact we were up by 20 with 3 minutes to go. The opposing team shot the ball and I jumped for the rebound then I was completely rammed and knocked to the ground by that one girl. I came down on my knee and heard the loudest crack. The pain was unbearable. They stopped the game, called an ambulance and I was rushed out of the gym on a stretcher to the nearby hospital. A few days later I found out I tore my ACL, my meniscus, and sprained my MCL. I had my first surgery in February to reconstruct my ACL. My doctor said I would be fine but physical therapy was brutal. After the surgery my body produced so much scar tissue I had to have another surgery in March to remove it. After the scar tissue removal I thought everything would get easier but my knee still would not bend after 2 months. I had physical therapy everyday but nothing would make my knee bend more than 70 degrees. I had to have a 3rd surgery in May to force my knee to bend. It is now the end of June and my knee is only at 115 degrees. I've been going to physical therapy since January and I just wish none of this ever happened. I'd like to play volleyball in September but I am just hoping I can play basketball again. I have yet to achieve that goal.

The most common sports injuries are strains and sprains. Sprains are injuries to ligaments, the tough bands connecting bones in a joint. Suddenly stretching ligaments past their limits deforms or tears them

Ever tried blood stimulation? NEW
by: Boris

Hello Kristyn.

My name is Boris, I am a physiotherapist.

I've dealt with case like yours, many times over and every time, you are not treating yourself with the right products.

Have you ever looked into blood stimulation?

Blood stimulation is very common in physiotherapist offices around the world, but a company called Kingbrand has created a product you can use at home.

I recommend this product for all of my patients, and all of them have been showing extreme improvement.

I highly recommend this for you. And wish you well.

How are you doing now?? I tore my ACL at the end of my freshman basketball season. I play Varsity and our team wasn't good at all. We could actually win this game. So, i was playing rough, and i jumped for a ball and turned while landing, fell on the girls foot, and felt and heard my knee pop. It was senior night, and i chose to stay through all of it before going to the hospital. My coach thought i tore my ACL but the hospital told me it was just a dislocated knee, and i had sprained it. I had an MRI about a week later and found out that i tore my ACL, Lateral Meniscus, and very bad bone bruising. I had surgery in April and am back to running now, and i am hoping to be back to sports in October. I feel so bad for you. I hope you can be back to playing sports soon. I can't imagine that much PT, and that many surgeries. How are you doing now?? I hope your recovery gets easier.
