Episode: 122 Do You Need Surgery After An ACL Tear? Copers vs Non-Copers with ACL Rehab Expert Mick Hughes
In this episode, Dillon sits down with Rehab expert Mick Hughes to discuss if surgery is the only option in treatment after an ACL tear. The conversation is incredible and split up into a 2 part series. In part 1 we look to answer, is ACL reconstruction needed or can you cope without reconstruction and return back to full function without surgery? What classifies someone as a coper vs non-coper? Can Non-copers become copers and vice versa? What are the considerations of determining if you should get ACL reconstruction surgery or not? These questions answered and much more on this episode!
