It has been eight month sense my son had surgery to repair a complete torn ACL and Menius tear he has been fine doing after two days of intense basketball practice, but today he had a little swelling which I think would be common, which most players ice their knee before and after each practice or game. He is not in no pain, but a little swelling on the outer side of his knee. Had him to soak in Espom Salt anyway. He did not take a rest between practice for the first time. He has been playing JV in order to get him condition again for the sport. He is also is trying to lose the 60 pound that he has gain all at the same time. My question is, do you think that he need to take a day in between while he is losing the weight being that is to much weight to be carrying. Do you think that soaking in Espom Salt from time to time , and drinking his celery smoothie which helps big time with inflammation ?
