Tiger Woods Progressing Nicely

Tiger recently made comments about his progress in returning from ACL reconstruction.  He reports hitting full shots with his irons and is progressing on schedule.  He hopes to play a few tournaments before the Masters.

He notes his legs are stronger an the knee is feeling more stable.  In my experience with rehabbing knees, the ability to regain proper stability  is very important.  With proper rehab, mobility comes back pretty quickly (depending on the athlete) but it is knee stability that is essential in controlling the forces that are imparted on the knee during the golf swing.

Stability is just that, the ability to control the demands and forces that occur at a particular joint during activities.  That control needs to happen in all planes of motion, forward/backward, side-to-side and rotational.  I am sure he is training this stability in all of these motions.

So keep up the good work Tiger and we hope to see you in action soon!
