    Working toward a black belt in karate can sometimes leave you feeling blue. On the eve of starting a months-long intensive training program in preparation for a 1st dan black belt exam, I tore the ACL in my left knee. I had arthroscopic surgery to reconstruct my ligament on April 11, 2008 and have begun the journey to recovery.

ACL Poll – First Physical Therapy Appt.


ACL Poll – Graft type

Perhaps the best thing about the various ACL blogs that are out is the chance to see how the experiences of other ACL recoveree differ from each other, and yet how they also seem to lead to the same result.  

In this spirit, I thought it might fun, and maybe helpful, to post a series of entirely unscientific polls about things like graft choice, braces, PT, and recovery stages, and ultimately return to sport.    Ideally, it’d be best to use something like SurveyMonkey or GoogleDocs’s polling feature to create a multi-question survey where you can filter responses.  But I don’t expect to get a very serious sample out of this, so this’ll just be for curiosity’s sake. 

If you have any particular questions you’d like to ask, feel free to post them in a comment and I’ll try to create polls for them.  Enjoy.
