The endurance training process started with a mild jog of 2 rounds around 400m track ground (800m) to see the stress respond on his leg. It responded well without any niggle or stiffness on the area. We have progressed his endurance training to a distance of 5000m within the month, he is going strong on it.
On 18th October I have implemented the next step of his prediozed plan, zig zag running, backward running, and some minor dynamic stretching … the out come is fantastic and he will be fit to play on early December.
Praise him for his hard work and dedication to go back to the game.
Former captain of New Radiant Sports Club Ammadey has started his rehabilitation with me on 18th October 2007. The player has been out of play for few months for this ligament injury he picked up this year. After the surgery from Sri Lanka he has to go on a long rehabilitation process. The Athlete has undertaken a major arthroscopy on his right knee. Below are detailed observations and present condition of the athlete.
Ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
Acute Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
Muscle atrophy (waste), restricted movement and low muscular strength observed on the injured leg.
The rehabilitation process began on 18th October, at the first day athlete has been assessed for movement patterns and functional strengths, to bring an athlete back to field after a surgery of this severity normally takes 6 months depending on many factors. At present the athlete is working out twice daily on a very low intensity with the periodization plan for six months.
Ammadey have started to work on to develop his range of movement of the knee and to build the wasted (atrophy) muscle on his injured leg. This key player of New Radiant Sports Club will take an estimated 5 months to be back on the field. Estimated to be on the field during early March 2008.
