General Banter / Re: Questions on coming back from injury(ACL)
« Last post by brandon21486 on March 12, 2018, 11:25:52 AM »
I started playing disc golf in 2009 and tore my ACL in 2010.  Your recovery will depend solely on how you treat it.  I would take full advantage of whatever physical therapy you can get from your insurance company after surgery.  Then, ease back into it.  I would say it was a full year after surgery before I was comfortable with throwing 100%.  I still wear a knee brace to this day just because my form isn't the greatest.  If I were you, I'd really take this opportunity to re-invent your form (if needed) and get that front foot to flip open at release.  This is assuming you tore the ACL on your plant leg, of course.  If it's the other one you tore then you're in a better position than I was...

Yeah plant leg unfortunately and sounds about like I figured as far as looking at next year to get back in to things. Hopefully can start putting practice this summer/fall then and improve that at least. I was planning to work towards better form since I wouldn't be playing at full strength for awhile as well. Figured it was as good a time as any!

Torn my acl playing basketball years ago.
Mri confirmed surgery.
Replaced with cadaver, no more physical fun rest of year.
You would need a acl eval done by a reputable knee surgeon to see how stable/unstable your knee is for twisting and weight bearing motions.
A mri would confirm this too with a radiological eval too.
Best case, minor partial tear, may get by with physical therapy and knee braces.
Good case, minor surgery.
Worse case, significant tear, needs to be repaced.

I've had it replaced I should have mentioned that. Had surgery in early February.

I've been meaning to put a post out for awhile but just haven't made the time. A couple of years ago I was playing almost every day over lunch and hitting up WW league on Thursday nights but ran into some injuries. A couple of weird minor injuries that I just had to let heal and then beginning this year right as I was starting to get out more I tore my ACL.

I was just wondering if anyone here has been through anything like this and how they managed getting back out and what the timeline looked like to be able to throw all out?
