Australia - Christian's soccer acl recovery age 13

by Christian Daly
(Victoria, Australia)

Hi guys, I'm now nearly 6 months into my recovery.


I had a FFA soccer scholarship and things were looking good until I injured myself on the 2nd day of a week long National tournament. It wasn't known at the time the extent of the injury ( just some swelling and discomfort) but two weeks later I was playing in a game and the injured knee just gave way from under me. I decided to get an MRI and it showed a torn ACL completely off the bone. I had a hamstring graft in Nov 2011 and now after 6 months I'm starting to dream about playing again. After reading this site and the amount of people that came back too quickly and re-tore their ACL means its more obvious than ever that I should not rush back. I don't plan to pay again until 11-12 months after the Operation.

At present my knee is good, no pain, no discomfort. I attend physio twice a week, a hydro pool once per week and in-between do my daily exercises. I also jog 3k once a week.
I'm now at the stage of S-bends and some light sprints. So basically I;m where I should be at this stage, no further ahead but not behind either.

The worse thing about being out with this kind of injury is that the phone stops ringing, the coach has forgot all about you, the scholarship doesn't get renewed and the soccer organization stops all communication plus your team mates start to lose touch. This is the down side because you are doing your very best to get back but you know your on your own, the family help all they can but you miss the dressing room and the sound and support of the coaches.

That's why I have a lot of respect for the people who have gone through the whole process and came out at the end and played at the same level or even bettered themselves.

My plan is to do my full recovery and stay very fit while doing so, then when I do appear on the training ground I don't need to worry about cardio or fitness and just concentrate on my soccer game. Prove to myself that I only had a year out (holiday!) and that I'm back playing like my old self again, that's my dream!

This is soo true , I'm Yemeni who grew up in africa , made it through the ranks , at 16 i was in Dubai almost got signed , few days before my contract agreement i tore my groin area , nothing serious at first , the club doctors didn't do a severe check , they thought it would heal in a week or two it ended up taking months ... I feel your struggle champ! Don't give up , the calls will end , the conversations will end .. But don't ever let your dream end !! People used to care about me , but only your family will always be with you.. Be strong , i hope you get back on track soon ..

This injury actually becomes more common, when players do not care for warm up. But when these things happen to the small kids there is nothing to be feared of. They heal much faster than the adults. Medical transcription companies

Hi Christian I'm glad you have a team to hopefully play for I tore my acl 2 times playing soccer and understand what it s to go through and have your team and your mates stop calling you so you are suddenly left with no support. I have since had 3 arthoscopic operations and am now lying in bed with my leg broken. Silly accident I hope you get well,I hope you get stronger and I hope you show them all what you can do. Go Christian go!

Hi, the latest update is I've joined a top club called Beaumaris soccer club. The coaches have gave me support and when I'm ready I can train and eventually play with them. This is a big boost that a club is willing to let me join while still injured. Hopefully I can re-pay them with some good displays when I'm fully fit...............getting really impatient but its not going to be long now before I hit the training ground.

good luck, keep your head up :)
by: Liz

My 14 yr old daughter also tore her acl playing soccer. Had surgey Feb 10,2012. She will start jogging this week. Everything is going as planned... Everything except being able to play. No soccer playoffs(which they lost in 2nd round), No softball(she planned to pitch and/or play shortstop), No volleyball training this summer and maybe no volleyball the upcoming season. Totally feel you on the coach issue. Her High school coach didnt even come see her. I got a few txt messages,but that was it. I expected more, especially when he played a 4-5-1 and she was the "1". I am glad to say I have recieved many e-mails from her travel soccer coach, who she played for last fall. Good luck and I wish you a speedy recovery.
