In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Stephanie Filbay, a physiotherapist by background and now full-time researcher with expertise related to evaluating and optimizing outcomes after Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury. We discussed her quantitative and qualitative research as it relates to ACL injuries, and she addressed common myths, such as the ACL being unable to heal, surgery being required to prevent additional knee injury, surgery being necessary to return to pivoting sports, and so much more!
