Hi! I’ll be finishing my undergrad this coming spring. However, I’m missing couple of pre-reqs for PT school. If all goes according to plan I can have it finished by fall 2014 or the latest spring 2015. I’m confused with the application process. When should I start applying? I have yet to take my GRE’s.

Newly Discovered Ligament in the Knee

It’s pretty incredible that after centuries of dissection and surgery, there can be an undiscovered body party, but that is what two Belgian surgeons have concluded. They discovered a “new” ligament in the knee, called the anterolateral ligament, which is located adjacent to the LCL. Their current research focuses on how the ligament relates to ACL function and recovery.
