Healthy Knees Tips # 7.

Golden Miracle or a Golden Luck

Pierre won Olympic snowboard Gold, with an untreated ACL (Cruciate) knee injury. While I must congratulate him for this extraordinary achievement, I also must caution him. 

Very rarely, a Cruciate deficient knee is strong enough to tolerate such stresses. Forget the loads of an Olympic game, but even loads of a day to day life may not be tolerated by all Cruciate deficient knees.

A golden miracle this time may end up with an additionally torn collateral ligament next time!!!
