Skiers who have experienced ACL injuries, how long did it take you to come back? How was your recovery?
I tore my ACL at the Dumont Cup last March, and i was finally released to ski today. Nothing intense, but still excited to get back on the hill. For those of you who have had a similar injury to myself, how was your recovery? How was skiing after the injury? Have you made it back to the level of skiing you were at before?
I torn my acl when I was 16. Had surgery early july and was skiing with a brace mid november.
I did an "accelerated" rehab with my PT basically did more PT for longer, basically every day and used a special knee mobilizer (basically just helped me get range of motion back) for the first week after surgery.
The first month or so was weird but I got right back into it by mid december and did mogul contents/big air contents etc all winter.
All times are Eastern (-5)
