Is there a brace that allows an athlete to play basketball while recovery from an MCL sprain?
What is the nature of the test for chronic exertional compartment syndrome?

  1. I understand MRI’s are now used to test for chronic exertional compartment syndrome. True? Also, I’m at 8 months post acl reconstruction and my hamstrings were used for the graft. My hammies are very weak and it’s going to take a few more months to get up to 90 degrees on a standing leg curl. I would have picked allograft if I had the choice.

    • A musculoskeletal radiologist I know advocates MRI to test for CECS. I would think that to see the muscle changes, the patient would have to get in the scanner almost immediately after the treadmill, and the image sequences would have to be taken very quickly to pick up the changes before the swelling resolved. Any radiologists reading or listening are more than welcome to comment, as I might be wrong. Thanks for your thoughts!
