Grzegorz Tkaczyk is back on the court!

tkaczOne of the Polish top handball players of XXI century is back on the court! Only six months after a serious shoulder surgery performed in Rehasport Clinic, Grzegorz Tkaczyk helped Vive Tauron become the Polish champion.

The Polish national handball player, the world’s vice champion captain from 2007, had his shoulder injured during a league match against Orlen Wisła Płock in November. The injury of a shoulder rotator cuff was so serious that surgery could not guarantee that he would return to professional sport. The surgery in Rehasport Clinic Hospital was performed by PhD Przemysław Lubiatowski, whereas rehabilitation process took place in Kielce, following the guidelines provided by doctor Lubiatowski and Rehasport Clinic physiotherapists.

At the beginning of May, after subsequent checkups “Młody” [Polish nickname, literally “The young”] was allowed to be back to game. He had an opportunity to show up in the league match on Saturday, 14 May, in the third match of the final of Polish championship. Tkaczyk entered the court in the 40th minute of the match, and its Vive Targi Kielce defeated Orlen Wisła Płock, which eventually gave the score 3:0 on the entire competition in the finals. Kielce team has also two other challenges in front: final tournament of the Polish Cup and Final Four of Champions League in Cologne. Tkaczyk will have a chance to help its team in these four most important matches.
