Built Back Up

18 May shonakamori 4 Comments »

The magic words finally came out of my physical therapists mouth today, “you are done with rehab.”  :)

After tearing my ACL and meniscus last summer, and 10 months of intense rehabbing, I’m finally free and out of the rehab room.  It was a long time running that’s for sure!  Even though I had previously written that I got cleared last month to go back to doing full gymnastics, I haven’t stopped going in to do my therapy exercises.  During the most intense phase, I was in there 3 times a week and for 2 hours at time.  Not to mention I was doing my normal training on top of that in the gym.

It’s definitely a weird feeling though.  Having gone through some fairly big injuries, I’ve gotten really close to my physical therapists and doctors.  But, at the same time, the rehab room and the hospital is not really where you want to be.

From now I’ll be monitoring my own leg exercises during training.  Thanks to Melissa, Dr. McAdams and Dr. Garza for building me back up again!

    Hey Sho,
    Love the posters! And…you GO…congrats on “graduating” to full and complete workouts…I’m sure you will miss your stays at PT…everyone does! Especially those great modalities they do there. Looking forward to great things to come in the near future. Wish you only the best as you work toward your goals in gym and life.
