Andy sustained a Quadriceps Tendon rupture after an accident on holiday in Mexico, he was unable to walk or put any weight on his leg. I repaired this using the Quads Tape this permitted Andy to mobilise faster than a traditional repair (using drill holes and sutures or suture anchors). He was able to have a faster return to activity due to the strength of the repair and the tape.

In this monthly article I’ll be focusing on common golf injuries, and touching on the not so common injuries that can be a consequence of playing the game we love.
