When Alpine skier Victor Malström suffered a knee injury recently, he more than likely wondered if the injury would be debilitating. Without having to think twice about it, Victor traveled to Terme Selce for post-injury rehabilitative therapy and after two weeks has seen great improvement in stability, strength and reduced pain in the injured knee. As an alpine skier, Victor relies on his knees to be strong, sure, and solid.
Yes, he has spent many days of long hours and extremely hard work, fairly exhausted at the end of each day, but his hard work has paid off. Between his physiotherapist in his native Finland and the staff at Terme Selce, he knows and feels with confidence that his muscles are growing stronger every day.
Terme Selce is a world-renowned sports injury therapy and rehabilitative facility that treats athletes as well as Olympic athletes from around the world. At Terme Selce, Victor underwent increasing resistance through exercises and a gradual increase in heavier exercise and movement therapies. Mainly, his therapy is comprised of repetitions of various, simple exercises with short breaks in between.
Victor experienced what is known as an ACL injury. ACL stands for anterior cruciate ligament. This ligament is extremely important for support and stability of the knee joint. At Terme Selce, staff helped Victor restore a proper gait and trained him in placing his knee sideways, behind and across his body, increasing balance both in hydrotherapy and out of water therapy techniques.
"The flexibility of the knee is almost normal and I haven't had no pain in several weeks!" writes Victor in his blog. For an alpine skier, such a comment is wonderful.
