Hi Jessica, My name is also Jessica and am too taking part in extended project! I am not a figure skater, but an a semi pro footballer for crystal palace ladies. in 2011 i tore my ACL and Meniscus in a lovely tackle. i had to wait till march of this year for the operation and then went on physiotherapy and am still to this day getting physio for my knee. i got many drugs before and after my operation, but if it wasnt for going through the pain of physio, i would never of got back to playing football again so soon. yes the operation fixed my knee, but it didnt strengthen and condition it to the point where i could play again at the fittest i could be without my opinion physio helps the client ie me, get back to full fitness, but then the need for the operation to mechanically fix my knee was paramount. i hope this has helped you in your studies!
