Milton Physiotherapy Rehab: Faster Post-Surgery Healing for Athletes
Undergoing surgery for sports-related injuries may be tedious, but the aftermath bears equally serious consideration to make sure the procedure presents the desired results. Scott Cruikshank of the Calgary Herald reports on one such situation: The news — Sam Bennett needing surgery on his cranky left shoulder — wasn't great. Nor was it entirely unexpected. So Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving stopped short of declaring it a worst-case scenario for the 18-year-old. "I look at it as, 'What's the best way to ensure that we have a good outcome?'" Treliving said this afternoon. "So you explore all the different avenues. Ultimately, the decision's made to get the issue fixed. "Anytime you're having surgery, that's not perfect by any stretch. But we have no reason to believe that this won't be . . . I hate to use the word 'routine,' but lots of players have gone through this."
