The Daily Echo: It’s Going to Keep Swelling… You better have a plan. August 5, 2021

August 5, 2021

A lot talk here about #worktheplan. Let’s discuss said plan. Swollen and six months out #postsurgery is not an uncommon site in the clinic. Where many protocols cut the athlete loose after three months, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for this eventuality. And for the athlete to know that swelling is going to happen as the vascular networks get rebuilt and tissue responses to loading become normalized. So, load you must, but that #yugo leg is going to swell. To manage this, the post-surgery athlete really should have a NMES device (H-Wave or other) to be worn for long periods of time. 20-30 min is great, but something you can have on for multiple hours helps the athlete get ahead, stay ahead, and avoid being limited by effusion in the affected area.
