I finished my rehab after a major injury to my right heel, ankle, and to a lesser extent, knee last week. My physical therapist said he was impressed and felt professional satisfaction in seeing me go from nearly 0% to nearly 90-100% movement/activity/stamina. Since last week I have attempted to skate again, but have been unable to do so. My PT said that he would like to see improvement with my balance, but he saw no reason for me not to start skating again. I am unsure what is wrong, but first of all, my skates feel not "right", unsure if its comfort, or I am not used to it, or something else. Next, I having issues standing up in skates! I have been improving on my balance board at home, but I am doing pretty good. I see no correlation with balance and when I am on the ice. Finally, I do understand I have pretty much lost all my muscle memory, but in four sessions of attempting to skate I am no further along than when I started! Has anyone been in a similiar situation? Any advice what to do? I am frustrated and am unsure what I need to start doing next. Last year I was a pretty accomplished skater and it has been only five years since I played rec league regularly. Now it seems like I am hopeless since I cannot skate a meter and remain standing.
