Bike skid can be bad, I experienced it firsthand with ruptured left knee ligament. I consulted some orthopedic, who advised me to get the surgery done. Sady part, he didn’t explain me how serious was it, long term impact on knee if I continue running. This is when i met Dr. Chikale for the first time. After initial examination he recommended an MRI to see the extent of damage and course of action. MRI report showed PCL rupture. I stopped running and focused on strength training as he recommended. He suggested that inorder to start running again I should get surgery done or change to some other workout routine.
13 May 17, I got operated by Dr. Chikale. He personally monitored my post-surgery recovery. Like a friend he made sure I don’t rush into running. Made weekly wise plan to keep my progress in check. Whenever I needed his advice he was just a call away.
On 21st Jan 2018, i ran Mumbai Half Marathon, first one post surgery.
As on 26th Aug 2018, i ran my first Marathon (42.2km) in Hyderabad, with no discomfort in knee.
Thanks Dr. I dedicate this run to you
