2 years almost too long

I am an extreamly well known athlete in my state. and someone that each team puts a mark on every game. im an All state, All new-england athlete, all academic, all conference as freshman in high school. I was just the one to carry the team on my back my second year, soph. year. In practice a goalie came out hit me so hard, tore my acl, mcl, medial meniscus, and quad i got a pretty good concussion also. I was so pissed in main and just the memories and horror haunts me.


I had surgery took about 8 months for recovery then went to get released and inflamed something in my knee that had to be taken out. took about 2 months to recover from that. So I missed my jr. year pre-season and opening few games. i came back 1 year later and made the team gel, I mean not to sound cocky but we only lost 1 game when i was playing besides tournament we lost 1 so a total of 2. i was a key player. But before all of this went down, my first game back was away i had played the whole entire game and in the last 10 min or so i went up for a header and came down and damaged my knee. i was screaming histerically! It was just a huge bone bruise and my os said I could play through it.

So I finished out the season and it just kept getting worse, my os said to rest so I did for 3 months no change so surgery was needed. not to find out a few days later I get a major head trauma which postponed surgery 4 months. now the only option left is to redo the acl again! and go through all the rehab again! I am going to have to miss my senior year in high school, that i was suppose to be the one to carry them on my back and be the leader, and the best player on the team.

I am lost im so depresed nothing seems to be going right for me. all i want to do is to play and I cant because of my knee. I want to playy through it but the pain would get worse and worse. so I dont want to end up playing bad and messing it up for my whole team. I have only played an entire high school season my freshman year! I mean seriously all i want to do is play and everyone is like you should just give up the soccer dream and move on. but the way i keep my head on straight for everything i want to do is thtough soccer and really hard exercise. hell week is like a high for me i just cant get enough, running and playing soccer its just what I do. I played it everyday of my life and ever since ive gotten hurt its just been going down hill and now has completely come to a stand still. I'm just so lost without it, going to practices and games depress me even more.

Anyways thanks for listening any advice and comments would be great.

Acl and medial meniscus tear.
by: Swati Joshi

this is very common sports injury.its common mistake sports people do.they never take efforts to lengthen and strengthen muscles.instead they do shortening.hence short muscles doesn't get full range of movement.hence twisting of leg lateral is common also as tendon has to bear the force if their limit gets over it leads towards ligament and then joint. this is the process.so your aim should be to make muscle healthy and elastic,not hypertonic and hypertophic. of course even after surgery you can do lengthening and increase the range and strength of muscles.in the process you ll learn joint sense and muscle scene.this is the aim of my teaching.
