My question is that about a year ago I tore my ACL and MCL and meniscus which required surgery in May 2020. I have been practicing Aikido many years and last year obtained my Nidan.
My recovery has been very good with physical therapy and advanced therapy at the gym. I was told that I could not return to the mat until one year after surgery.
Have you had any students who had this type of injury and were able to return to practice?
I am in very good shape but do not want to twist my knee so I am kind of nervous about going back. Even now I’m told not to take any backward or forward rolls.
My orthopedist and my physical therapist or not really familiar with the practice of Aikido. And by the way I am 71 but in good shape. Thank you
