Return to Play Post-Surgery Goals

Months 7-8: Return to Competition Phase

Throughout months 7-8 you are able to return to competition.

Congrats! Way to go!

Congratulations and make sure you are in the best shape possible to return both physically and mentally. It will only improve as long as you continue to challenge yourself and continue your strengthening.

Remember you won't be 100 percent, fully recovered until 12 to 18 months. Professional athletes take one year to return to high level competition. Be patient!

Good luck!


  • Enjoy yourself and have fun playing again!
