Re: When Physical Therapy Doesn't work

My son is 17 yrs old with partial tear to the acl and mcl.. insurance keeps denying surgery so they are wanting him to try physical therapy for his problem they say to strengthen the quad. After therapy he always complains about the pain that he has.. we ice, give antiinflammatoriries, they gave even prescribed pain pills.. none of it is helping.. what should we do?

The Calf Skin provides the calf with constant compression for both calf and shin area. Excellent in helping reduce shin splints, Bio Skin's light weight and low profile make it very easy to wear.
