Today the athlete can undergo ACL reconstruction surgery and be back in full competition in 98 days. Historically ACL injuries meant a season was lost, and many months of physical therapy was required to regain muscle strength. That is no longer required using the latest electrotherapy technology.
By using the Infrex Plus high frequency interferential stimulator immediately post operatively, the patient can be back competing before the season is over in some sports. The new standard is aggressive rehabilitation using electrotherapy for pain, faster tissue regrowth and full range of motion.
The benefits are not only physical, but also fiscal for insurance companies and patients paying with HSAs, high deductibles, and out of pocket. By shortening the rehab. time less money is being spent per ACL patient.
Check out the timeline of this patient operated on July 25, 2012 and back to competition 98 days later.
