Kevin Finn – Coming back from ACL tears with The SISM Clinic & the ISO Machine
Hi, my name is Kevin Finn and I have been unfortunate enough to have ruptured my cruciate ligament on both knees!
The first time round I did not do my rehab here in the Sports Injury & Sports Medicine Clinic in Castlebar with Martin and Mark! I went to a local physio in Roscommon and while the programme he gave me was good, I found it difficult to really build up the muscle around the knee. I found myself working tirelessly in the gym with no real progress. Certain exercises which I found helpful were leg curls and RDL’s.
It was frustrating sometimes.
The difference with my rehabilitation on my second cruciate ligament and the first injury is that the clinic gave me the chance to use the isokenetic machine. It was absolutely brilliant. My first ISO session was about a week or two after my operation. It was brilliant first off in getting the range of motion back in my knee and it now feels no different than when I had done it before. The ISO sessions kept getting harder but coming off the machine I could notice the difference in the muscles around my knee which is very important to ensure it doesn’t go again.
The different settings on the ISO machine enabled me to build up muscle very quickly. One ISO session was as good as about 2 weeks in the gym. It’s a fantastic set up and urge anyone with a knee injury or any other leg injuries to get into the clinic and get on the isokenetic machine as soon as possible. It was brilliant in aiding my recovery and I could really notice the difference from the first rehab programme on my left knee without ISO sessions and the rehab programme with ISO sessions.
