In January Piotr Wyszomirski has to tasks – he can support our national team in front of TV and he must undergo intensive rehabilitation after his knee surgery. Rehabilitation in Rehasport Clinic in Warsaw went as planned.
Piotr Wyszomirski was to be one of the most important players for the world championship in France but sustained a knee injury during the training camp in December. The examination managed by PhD Tomasz Owczarski, a Polish national team doctor, showed damage to medial meniscus. The surgery was performed on 4 January. Despite the fact that only two weeks have passed since then, TBV Lemgo goalkeeper is now working on a suitable walk in Rehasport Clinic in Warsaw. It is possible thanks to Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill which removes the load of as many as 80 percent of body weight. – After we have sewed a meniscus, the patient needs to walk on crutches for about four weeks, thanks to this treadmill we can shorten it substantially – says Monika Szulecka, a Rehasport Clinic physiotherapist, who works with Piotr Wyszomirski. – At present our priority is to reduce the swelling, increase range of movements, regain proper muscle flexibility and activate hip quadriceps – adds Monika Szulecka.
On Thursday a 28-year-old goalkeeper will be examined by PhD Tomasz Owczarski. Stitches will be removed as well. According to the doctor’s estimations, Wyszomirski will have to take a break for about six weeks.
Rehasport Clinic is an official medical partner of the Polish Handball Federation.
