Recovering from Reconstructive Knee Surgery

In the competitive world of high school sports, setbacks like injuries can feel like the end of the road. Recovery can be long. For Gavin Harrison, a promising athlete at Stone Bridge High School, a knee injury threatened to derail his dreams of making a successful return to the field. However, with determination and the expert guidance of Elite Wellness, Gavin’s story took a remarkable turn.

Recovery from ACL Surgery

In August of his junior year, Gavin suffered a devastating knee injury that left him facing the prospect of not just one, but two surgeries. With his future in sports uncertain, Gavin turned to Elite Wellness for help. Little did he know, that this decision would change the course of his recovery journey.

ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament), MCL (Medial collateral ligament), and meniscus repairs on both knees generally take up to 15 months to recover from.

The Elite Wellness team wasted no time in devising a comprehensive recovery plan for Gavin, starting with a second opinion from renowned sports injury surgeon. This crucial step not only reduced Gavin’s surgeries to one but also paved the way for a faster recovery timeline.

“My knee injury has been the worst thing that’s happened to me during my junior year while trying to get recruited. Working back from this severe injury is not easy at all, but I would wake up every day knowing it would be hard and painful. I pushed myself in everything I did because I knew I wanted to be back on the field.”
