Muchanic Returns From Major Ankle Injury

Ian Muchanic is a senior defensemen for the Ospreys' lacrosse team. During the 2008 season, he suffered what was initially diagnosed as an eversion ankle sprain and later a significant posterior tibialis tendon strain that caused him to miss the last half of the season (although he did return partially for their playoff game in May). Ian did rehab with us in April of 2008 until the end of the spring season. He was placed in an Arizona Brace for the summer and was withheld from running and sports.

Ian started back up with rehab in September and gradually returned to full participation during the fall season. He has been diligently working to return to the field. He has increased his range of motion, overall ankle strength, and has been able to complete functional testing without any pain or problems. Lacrosse began their preseason on February 2nd. "Ian has done an excellent job with his rehab and we expect him back at his pre injury level this season", commented Jon Heck, MS, ATC, Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation.
