Abstract

This short communication outlines the successful rehabilitation of a high performance taekwondo athlete in returning to competition and becoming national champion, following right hip arthroscopy for a debilitating labral tear and impingement lesion. This case highlights a potential phased physiotherapy program that can be adapted for high level athletes in all fields, and illustrates the importance of individualized programs based on regular comprehensive assessment. The patient in question had suffered severe pain in the joint and her athletic future was in doubt; debilitating injuries of the hip can be amenable to the combination of appropriate surgical and musculoskeletal physiotherapy interventions.
