|5/5/03- Edley Completes Rehab
|Cori completed her supervised rehabilitation today. Her knee is
doing very well and she has progressed through a plyometric program
and an agility training program. She returns to Dr. Zuck today,
and we expect her to get final clearance for full activity, as she
is now over 6 months post surgery. She will begin playing in a summer
soccer league in June. She will also continue to work on a home
rehab program for the summer.
|4/15/03- Edley Progresses Through Phase 3 of Plyometrics
|Cori has recovered completely from her two minor setbacks of an
LCL sprain and IT Band syndrome. She is in the final stages of her
supervised rehab. She has progressed to single
leg plyometrics this week. She is progressing through her functional
rehab without the use of her knee brace. We anticpate phasing in
an aggressive agility/ running program next week and will progress
through that for the remainder of the semester. Cori continues to
work on her quad/ hamstring strength and maintaining her range of
motion at her knee.
|3/11/03- Edley Back to Full Rehab
|Cori saw Dr. Zuck on 3/3 and was diagnosed with a minor LCL injury
and a resolving popliteal cyst. He gave her the OK to return to
her normal rehab schedule. We gradually added in her functional
training over the past week, which Cori tolerated well. She is now
back on schedule and completing her full itinerary of rehab exercises.
|2/27/03- Edley Aggravates Knee
|Cori injured her knee while "horsing" around in her
appartment on Sunday. We have concerns of a mild LCL ligament injury.
We have a low index of suspicion of a meniscal injury and her IT
Band Syndrome further clouds the issue. She also has some popliteal
inflammation. We adjusted her rehab to focus on pain control and
inflammation on Monday and Tuesday and she has gradually increased
her rehab this week. She returns to Dr. Zuck on Monday for follow-up
regarding this injury.
|2/13/02- Edley Develops Tendinitis
|Cori has developed a minor case of IT Band Syndrome, which basically
is tendonitis along the outside of her knee. We have made some minor
adaptations in her rehab for this injury, including eliminating
the bike/ stairmaster temporarily, until we get her symptoms to
calm down. Otherwise her knee is doing great, and she is on target
in her rehab program. She is now jogging for 15 minutes on the treadmill
and is working on a stationary pattern- hopping program. She is
now about 14 weeks post surgery.
|1/22/03- Edley Begins Jogging
|During winter break Cori did two weeks of home rehab and one week
of rehab at Bayshore Community Health Services. Her rehab now also
includes step-ups, lunges, and hamstring curls in the weight room.
Cori began jogging today with 5 minutes on the treadmill at 3 miles
per hour. Her AROM is normal for both extension and flexion and
her quad control has made nice progress. She will begin rehab with
us again 4-5 days per week.
|12/13/02- Rehab Focuses on Quad Strength
|Cori is now 7 weeks post surgery. She continues to do rehab 5
days per week. Her extension and flexion are now within normal limits.
We now work on maintaining the gains she has made in knee extension.
Her primary goal now is to increase her quad strength and control.
She is also working on the eliptical/hiking machine in addition
to the stationary bike. She is also working on hip abduction/ adduction
in addition to the leg press in the weight room. She is being fit
for a functional ACL brace next week.
|11/22/02- Edley On Target in Rehab
|Cori continues to progress well in rehab and is on target with
her rehab at about 4 weeks post surgery. Her quad strength and control
is progressing and she has maintained her gains in extension and
flexion which are in the normal range. She is now working on the
leg press in a limited range of motion. She has also begun working
on hamstring stengthening. Her primary complaint is soreness at
and around her incision and portal sites. She returns to Dr. Zuck
for follow-up in early December.
|11/5/02- Edley Begins Biking in Rehab
began stationary biking in rehab on Monday night. She is making
some very fast progress and she has met her goals without much trouble.
Her extension has improved very well and her flexion is up to 115
degrees. We feel her prehab and the use of the achilles tendon allograft
have eliminated much of the difficulty usually associated with regaining
full extension after ACL surgery. She has also begun 1/4 squats.
She is also now walking without her crutches in her Bledsoe hinged
brace. We anticipate beginning work on the leg press next week.
|10/30/02- Edley Begins Rehab
|Cori started her rehabilitation program 5 days post
surgery in the Stockton Athletic Training
room. Initially her program will focus on regaining full knee extension
and improving quad strength and knee flexion. On day one her active
ROM was 62 degrees of flexion and she was 20 degrees short of full
extension. Post rehab today her motion has improved to 107 degrees
of flexion and just short of full extension. She will rehab 5 days
per week She is partial weight bearing with crutches and is progressing
toward full bearing with no crutches. She is wearing a Bledsoe brace.
|10/25/02- Edley's ACL Surgery Goes Well
|After 10 days of "prehabilitation" aimed at increasing
Cori's range of motion, quad strength, and hamstring strength, Cori
underwent ACL reconstruction. The surgery was performed by Dr. Glenn
Zuck, DO of Pace Orthopedics at Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers
Point, NJ. Her procedure took 2 hours and she used an achilles tendon
allograft for her new ACL. During the surgery injury to her lateral
meniscus was confirmed and partial meniscectomy was also performed.
Her MCL sprain was not involved in the surgery.
|10/15/02- Edley's MRI
Confirms ACL Tear
MRI was read on Tuesday 10/15/02 and confirmed the original diagnosis.
A meniscal injury could not be ruled out from the MRI. Cori will
continue "prehabilitation" until her surgery which is
scheduled for Friday 10/25/02. The concept behind prehab is to increase
her knee toward normal strength and motion so her rehab will be
easier post surgery. "The stronger going in ... the stronger
|10/9/02- Edley Injures
ACL in Collision
forward, Cori Edley injured her left knee during a soccer game against
Georgian Court College. The injury occurred during a collision between
her and the opposing goalie. Edley was initially evaluated by the
Georgian Court Athletic Training staff and the attending physician.
An MCL and ACL injury were suspected and she was removed from competition.
Edley was our first ACL related soccer injury since 1999.
The following day Cori reported to the Athletic Training Room for
re-evaluation by the Stockton athletic training staff. The same
injuries were suspected with the addition of a possible lateral
meniscal injury. Edley was referred to Dr. Glenn Zuck, DO later
that afternoon and the diagnosis was confirmed. She was scheduled
for an MRI the following day.
