Dr. Cameron Scenario:
Shantell Johnson just heard from her coach that several college scouts, who are ready to award scholarships, have inquired about her and said they will be at the upcoming championship game. Receiving a scholarship will make Shantell the first person in her family with the opportunity to go to college. Unfortunately Chantel injured her right knee during the summer semi finals and the schools athletic trainer said she cannot play in the championship game because of possible further, irreversible damage. Shantell scheduled an appointment with Dr. Cameron.
Dr. Lisa Cameron is Shantell‘s primary care physician and she specializes in sports medicine.
She reviews the results from Shantell’s recent MRI to see what kind of damage has occurred.
Dr. Cameron confirms the athletic director‘s concerns. Shantell most definitely injured her right knee and, in fact tore her and anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL. Playing in another game could cause further damage to articular cartilage and menisci.
Shantell pleads with Dr. Cameron for a note to clear her for the championship game because she has a lot riding on the game for her and her family. She tells Dr. Cameron that if she is old enough to join the military and risk her life fighting for this country, then she is mature enough to make this decision. Shantell promises to wear a knee brace during the championship game and afterwards she will take it easy until her ACL heals completely.
