Knee Club

WSC Knee club has been developed by our highly experienced sports physiotherapists to enhance athlete’s rehabilitation from serious knee injuries and surgeries, such as:

  • Ligament reconstruction- e.g. anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL)
  • Arthroscopy
  • Patella dislocation
  • Other painful or growth related conditions
  • In addition any athletes looking to improve their lower limb strength, performance and prevent injury will benefit from attending the sessions.

    Why

  • ACL rupture is a common injury during adolescence and adulthood and can have a devastating effect for young athletes where sport is an important part of their life
  • Statistics show that only 55% of athletes return to competitive sport and that they often have functional deficits despite performing at a high level
  • 25% of athletes will re-tear their ACL or tear the one on the opposite side

How can knee club help:

The WSC knee club uses an individualised and methodical approach to rehabilitation which is necessary to help the athlete back to sport and also prevent subsequent knee injuries.
Sessions focus on:

  • Improving strength, power, endurance of the lower body and core
  • Balance retraining
  • Jumping and landing techniques
  • Functional and sports specific training
  • Perturbation training
