Hey everyone – in this video, I explained Leno’s right knee injury, return timeline, performance and long-term impacts, and why the diagnosis is the best case scenario. The injury may also be a sprain of the outer layer of the knee capsule but that changes none of the other points. Lastly – I’m still waiting on more info/confirmation on Martinelli.
Here’s a table of contents, header (sub headers):
0:40 Mechanism of injury (graphic warning)
1:03 Initial fears
1:18 Team diagnosis (injury severity, return timeline, which ligament?)
2:18 Career impact (performance, long-term, commitment to fitness, position-specific boost)
For those at work or the hard of hearing, I’ve transcribed subtitles on YouTube so sound isn’t required.
For reference, I’m a DPT and youth football (soccer) coach well-versed in sports science and biomechanics, with sports rehab & performance clinics in West LA and Valencia, CA. Feel free to hit me with questions and/or you can always find me on IG and twitter @ 3cbperformance.
