Rehab is essential for any athlete who has sustained a debilitating injury to the musculoskeletal system. Below is a sample protocol that can be used to treat an athlete who has sustained a sesamoid stress fracture that required surgical repair. An athlete returning from surgical repair of a great toe stress fracture can be expected to be out for approximately two to four months. Likewise, it is important that the clinician working with the athlete keeps in mind that the athlete will not only be going through the rehab physically but also emotionally. It is best if the athlete is not given specific dates of when they will return to play, and that the clinician tries to keep the athlete surrounded by their team atmosphere as much as they can.
When the tendon is overused chronically without given adequate time to heal, tendinosis known as Jumper’s Knee can occur in response to the damage. Conventionally, jumper’s knee can be noted as a patellofemoral pain syndrome. The teno-osseous junctions, where the attachments of the quadriceps tendon and patellar tendon occur, are the impacted areas under this condition. The described patellar pain affects the quadriceps tendon and patellar tendon inserted either into the tibial tuberosity or the patella (Curwin and Stanish, 1984).

When the heel height is taken, the doctor presses down on the knee while the heel is brought up. If there is a normal knee to compare the hyperextended knee to, if the heel height is increased, then it could be a diagnosis for genu recurvatum. Usually, when the test is done, if the heel height measures about 10 cm (3.9 inches) then the athlete is diagnosed with genu recurvatum (Loudon et al., 1998). When shown on X-rays, patients with genu recurvatum will show the femur tilting on the tibia.
Massage therapy shouldn’t be carried out in the acute stage post injury, if the sprain is only first degree it can take from 48hours to a week before massage therapy can be carried out. This is due to the massage causing increased bleeding, prolonging the healing process. By including it several weeks into the treatment this should avoid excess bleeding. There are different types of massages that are used as techniques to help the healing process. Effleurage is a massage in which involves oils to warm the muscle area so that it is ready for a deeper massages.
Inflammation can last from up to 10 minutes up to 72 hours depending on the severity of the injury and the individual.
