Knee Hyperextension in Ex-Rhythimic Gymnast

Ms Lim is a 35 yrs old ex-rhythmic gymnast who came to see me after a fall on her right knee. It was interesting that she had an extremely flexible left knee with an additional range of 35 degrees in extension. She had been perfectly normal in the left knee and did not suffer from any nagging pain.

She was advised to maintain an active lifestyle to ensure that she looses some weight and also strengthen her back, abdomen, hip and lower limb muscles to prevent injuries.
