Mike Lowell’s road back
|10.30.08 at 7:45 pm ET|
From Red Sox assistant trainer Mike Reinold: “Early in the rehabilitation program the emphasis is on recovering from the trauma of the surgery itself (ice, compression, gentle range of motion exercises), restoring motion and muscle activity of his hip and entire lower extremity (basic isometric exercises for the hip and strengthening of his other leg muscles) and normalizing his gait (crutches and exercises to help him walk normal again). Once this initial period is over, we can begin to emphasis more of the strength and balance of his legs and core, which will be a several week phase. He can then begin to integrate his normal offseason and baseball activities. At the end of the program, he will likely be even stronger and agile than before.”
