Medical Perspectives on Social Media

  1. Jeff Mueller, PT, DPT – @jmthrivept Jeff Mueller expressed concern for a significant ligament injury to LaPorta’s left knee, specifically pointing out the risk to the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and LCL (Lateral Collateral Ligament). He noted the knee’s buckling and hyperextension, indicating a serious injury that could impact LaPorta’s performance in 2024.
  2. Jesse Morse, MD – @DrJesseMorse Dr. Jesse Morse shared that there are several possibilities regarding LaPorta’s injury. The stress on the medial knee could imply an MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) issue or a bone bruise. Morse hopes that it’s merely a mild hyperextension without significant damage to the ligaments or meniscus.
  3. Tom Christ, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT – @FantasyInjuryT Tom Christ pointed out a “varus” moment in the injury, where the knee caves outward, stressing the LCL. He also raised concerns about potential hyperextension but noted that the exact nature of the injury is difficult to ascertain from the available angles.
