Excellent. Hope you're at full power again soon, Simon!
Good to see you are on the mend. Having more than one independent opinion will more than likely give you confidence in the best course of action to proceed, which you are doing. As you are fairly young and are not competing to put food on the table, a few months of rehab will make you right as rain and your training will not suffer tremendously for it. Onward and upward, Simon !
Thanks so much guys, really appreciate it. Will be hard work this rehab process, but I'm already stoked that I can walk almost normally. Bit painful today, but can only get better with more use.
Rehab is going really really well, and in fact at Tuesday's session he said there's no need for any more physio sessions . He's really happy with my progress, my strength and mobility is improving in leaps and bounds, and to basically just go back if there are major issues or crazy stiffness to work out.
Any slight pains and stiffness will work itself mostly, but I'm walking normally, and pain has subsided alot.
I really enjoyed the sessions, the fact that he was a karate-ka was awesome, as he tailored my sessions basically towards the goal of getting back into the dojo. Lots of balance exercises, moving in forward stance (zenkutsu dachi), ladder-like agility drills on balls of feet, lateral work, and even sparring footwork drills. Will be certain to go back to him for any other injuries.
Quite a journey. Now to get back into the dojo, wherever that may be
Glad to hear progress is good. Sounds like maybe the rest did help, after all, so maybe just too much of what it needed so you could get to rehabbing it properly.
Yeah for sure, rest was needed I'm sure, but I ran it for longer than necessary unfortunately going by the early diagnosis etc. Onward on upward
