Lee Walker's knee issues were ligament tears too. he had 3 reconstructions like Schaz I believe.
No his ligaments were loose, his cartilages were fine
Yes he had several ACL tears; as has been mentioned he had two reconstructions before coming to us.

Often in the process of rupturing your ACL you can also tear other ligaments and/or the meniscus, which slows recovery considerably and leads to poorer outcomes in the medium and long term. The reason Tyson Goldsack was able to get back so quickly last year, other than a heap of dedication and determination, was that his ACL was torn in isolation.

Just going off the probabilities, Walker likely suffered significant meniscal damage somewhere along the line... he’s probably a candidate for a knee replacement earlier in life than average.

Players like Walker, Schaz, Schwarz, Johnstone, Woodward... you’ve got to feel for them as it not only ruins their AFL dreams and aspirations, it impacts their quality of life permanently in many cases.

Still a lot better than getting a lot of concussions.

25 years on from 2 ACLs and its the cartilage damage that gives me grief on a daily basis. Sleeping through the night is impossible due to a the constant ache. I'm probably not far off a replacement.

I would've thought it's not common for someone to rupture an ACL and not damage the joint. Do 2 like Shaz and it'd a miracle if he doesn't have issues down the track.

Feel your pain
Did mine 35 years ago
I've had doctors young and Bartlett have a good go

Ripped ACL

Jammed the cartilage in the joint and played a lot more than I should have
Atrophy of the leg

Advised and Used a lot of letric soda to bring down the swelling quick
Not great calcified the joint

Played 226 more games


Recommend penny wort and acupuncture to stimulate
Penny wort will relieve the pain
Good luck

Julian Feller did the last cleanout and I wish I went to him 25 years ago.

Yeah I hear you
Youngs suggestion was build up my quads and calfs

Got operated on same day as larry sengstock
Think his went as well as mine

Could have been worse my mate did his and it looks like a shark bit him

Penny wort helps the arthritis
