For a physical therapy student completing a clinical internship, one quickly learns that not all patients present as perfectly as they do in the textbooks. This case report highlights the clinical decision making to navigate such a patient and the various interventions used to reduce pain, increase range of motion and help the patient return to functional activities following a complex knee injury.
The purpose of this study is to map the clinical decision-making process from a student physical therapist’s perspective in managing a 21-year-old male with multiple knee ligament injuries to help improve knee mobility.
