Back on Snow After ACL Replacement Surgery
Returning to skiing this season after tearing ACL (Dec 2014) and having reconstruction surgery (Jan 2015).
Have rehabbed it hard (lot's of weights) all year and was cleared by Doctor last week after being told I did "an amazing job" on the rehab. Was just fitted for a Donjoy Armor knee brace - I will wear brace this year, maybe next year also.
- Has anyone seen a good program once on snow/skis?
- What should be emphasis first few runs? Few days?
- Any drills (on skis) that help with physical or mental aspects of this return?
Aggressive SL/GS type skier (ex-racer, mid-forties). My first ski days will be in WI. But have plans to ski MT in Christmas, CH (Wengen/Grindelwald) in Feb, and UT in March.
Thanks for help.
