In response to Hockeyguy.
Following surgery (beginning at week 6) my son was initially following a program of jogging straight lines, running straight lines, then figure 8's, progressing to cutting etc.. However, each time he went beyond jogging he experienced sharp pain. At the same time he was having regular physio (although the physio was really guesswork and the usual ice, some basic stretches and exercises) but was not progressing very well. He decided to try swimming in an effort to stay in shape. He began with running in the water, progressing to threading water and eventually laps. Pushing himself harder each week. Whether it was time itself or swimming or both, he found his strength returning and the incidents of pain diminishing (see earlier post re: post surgery pain). He began core strength exercises with the help of a personal trainer. He unfortunately suffered an achilles injury when he commenced activity on dry land- hence my suggestion to see a Chiro in all stages of your recovery. He played his first game of soccer in over a year last week (7 months post surgery) and got through it OK and had no problems from an AP perspective. Fingers remain firmly crossed that his injury nightmare is coming to an end.
Best of luck and keep the blades sharpened.
