    Docs Rehabbing Gordon's Quad & Knee

    Jennifer Hale‏@JenHale504
    #Hornets Eric Gordon rehabbing quad as much as knee. Quad atrophied to 10% strength. Now 65%. If pace continues, return possible end of Dec.

    Jennifer Hale‏@JenHale504
    #Hornets Eric Gordon's rehab schedule: 8:30 am - 3:00 daily as therapists build up quad to take pressure of knee. Gordon: Pain is subsiding.
    Wow... sounds like someone missed a diagnosis big time w/ his quad (or maybe it's just me and the no medical knowledge I have)

    Docs Rehabbing Gordon's Quad & Knee

    10% strength. Did he contract aids during the offseason. This is ridiculous.

    Don't you just love random percentages on health?

    everything is connected...chronic injuries often are caused compensating for something in a different muscle group.

    in other words, there might be nothing wrong with the quad but strenthing it will prevent reinjury in the knee.

    I imagine they meant he lost 10% total strength and has regained 65% of the missing strength back.

    I dunno. I don't know. Nothing about this makes any sense. My leg atrophied to maybe 5 percent once. But I also happened to smash the bones in it and was bed ridden for 2 weeks. The hell happen to this guy?

    I'm not even watching this crappy game tonight. I've had enough non-sense to last me until February.

    I think they are talking about joint strength. This is not a misdiagnosis.

    See the report here:

    From last night, for those just catching up . . .

    I'm reading it differently than you.

    Yep. They said he was going to be working on strengthening his quad back in early November.

    Exercising Muscles that Surround The Knee:

    The muscles surrounding the knee include the quadriceps, hamstring, and calf muscles. The focus of most knee rehabilitation is on these muscles. When injuries occur, often these muscles become weaker and less supportive of the knee.

    Exercises for the muscles that surround the knee include quadriceps strengthening exercises, hamstring strengthening exercises, and calf strengthening exercises.

    This is pretty standard. Not sure why they're just doing this and they didn't know what was wrong at training camp? That's part of the occupational and physical rehab you receive after a surgery.

    So the quad declined to 10% and it's now at 65%?

    That is the interpretation that seems appropriate.

    End of December means middle of January at earliest. Were told 4-6 weeks; will be more like 10-12. Standard

    Good to see he's making progress. At this point, I'm less worried about time-frame. All I want to see is consistent progress from his rehab.

    He's played in actual games, tried out for the Olympic team, been upright and walking, and worked out with Hornets staff on top notch exercise equipment long before going to this doc in L.A. After all of that, his quad was down to 10%? It basically shriveled up to the muscle mass of an 80 year old?

    As someone who's had atrophy after an an injury and major surgery, whoever said that pee'd in the wind and told ya'll it's raining.

    Yeah, it's pretty clear when your leg is 1/2 the size of the other. It's baffling.

    There's pretty much no way it atrophied to 10%. I've also had an injury where I couldn't walk for two weeks and my leg muscles were certainly weaker but nowhere near down to 10% of their original strength. Has Gordon been in a wheel chair for the last 6 months?

    I wouldn't think of the 10% as some quantitative measure. It's not like his squats went from repping 400 to repping 40.

    In encourage those interested to READ UP rather than sit around and guess while remaining ignorant of the facts.

    If it's important, learn. If not, sit back and let the grown ups talk.

    This guy on his forum said he had a 6 inch thigh circumference difference after his knee surgery.

    When healthy, Gordon is a top-5 SG in this league, and he is only 24.

    Did that guy play in NBA games following his surgery?

    I don't know but I know people shouldn't assume that their injuries, surgeries and rehabs are exactly the same as the next guy.
