Re: Returning to training after injury

You should be able to return to "normal" IF you take it slowly and allow for a period of rehab between healing and full on training. Because of how we move in aikido vs how "normal" folks move, heheheheh, your doc probably won't think you merit formal P.T. but you *might* consider, as rehab, after cleared by doc for return to normal life, checking in w/ a good soft tissue bodyworker and a good athletic trainer to see what support structures need remobilizing/strengthening/stretching in addition to taking a gradual approach to returning to training.
