physiotherapy and rehabilitation

Expert repair of anterior cruciate ligament damage in Northamptonshire

Running diagonally through the inside of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is responsible for keeping the knee joint stable.  It is very commonly injured during sporting activities such as football, netball, rugby and tennis that can involve stopping and changing direction suddenly, overextension of the lower leg or having a collision.  Symptoms of a damaged ACL include severe pain, swelling and knee instability.  Initially treatment of an ACL injury normally focuses on pain relief and reduction of the swelling, followed by physiotherapy to regain strength and movement in the knee.  In cases where the knee remains unstable, surgical repair of the ligament is often recommended.


A skilled arthroscopic (keyhole) surgeon, Mr Auld offers expert reconstruction of the ACL with a hamstring graft harvested from the top of the shin.  He works in close conjunction with specialist sports physiotherapists to ensure full and appropriate rehabilitation for patients wishing to return to their chosen sport.

Knee cartilage repair

The joint surfaces of the knee are covered with cartilage, a smooth, flexible material that reduces friction in the joint and allows the surfaces to move easily over one another.  The ends of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) are also protected by discs of cartilage known as the menisci.  It is common for both the articular cartilage of the knee and the menisci to become damaged as a result of sporting activities.


With immediate access to MRI scanning, Mr Auld offers expert assessment of knee damage such as persistent swelling, locking and instability.  Where damage to the knee cartilage is identified, he is able to offer a range of arthroscopic treatments, including trimming or suturing meniscal cartilage tears and techniques that encourage the natural repair of articular cartilage, such as abrasion chondroplasty, microfracture and cartilage transplantation.
