TRAINING LADDER FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS: FOR MUSCLE RUPTURE IN THE POSTERIOR THIGH (RUPTURA MUSCULI)
The following rehabilitation program will cover the needs for the vast majority of children with muscle rupture in the anterior thigh. Older teenagers involved in sports at a high level can advantageously use the rehabilitation program for adults.
Unlimited: Cycling. Swimming.
Lie on your back. Hold your knee and draw it up against your chest so that the muscles in the back of the thigh become increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Lie on your back with the heel of the injured leg resting on the bench or a smooth floor. Bend and stretch the injured leg while keeping contact with the surface at all times.
Lie on your stomach on the floor with your arms above your head and with outstretched legs. Lift right arm and left leg together, changing to lift left arm and right leg together.
Lie on your back and bend the injured leg. Lift the healthy leg, and then raise your backside with the weight on the injured leg to be trained. Hold the position a few seconds and lower your backside again. Moving the injured leg further away from the body will increase the load.
Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated.
The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
