“Ultrasonography of the right thigh tissues:

In the Sartorius muscle, visible scar-fibrous lesions in the area of ​​20×5 mm are visible at the lesion site. Insertion of the adductor muscles of the thighs without pathological features. There is no exudate in the hip and in the ilio-lumbar bursa. 4th image.”

Ultrasound examination – Sartorius muscle strain – comprehensive therapy effect

Therapy results:

Functional test – increased range of motion, decreased pain sensation in jumping and squatting exercises. The player returned to train.

Conclusions:

Intensive rehabilitation, based on the ASTAR devices application – LLLT cluster laser applicator , high-power laser therapy unit Polaris HP – has significantly accelerated the regeneration of injured Sartorius muscle. Estimated treatment time – 4 weeks. Effective treatments allowed the player to return back to game after 2.5 weeks.
