I just broke my tibia cheerleading. At a game another girl and i were
too close and we were tumbling. We ran into each other! i had a full leg
cast, and now it is shorter. I can not start sports until march. Try outs
are in April, do u have any ideas of what i can do to help me prepare
without using my leg? Please e-mail me back, i am really nervous. Cheerleading
means a lot to me!
Ask your Doctor, Nurse and Physical Therapist for a set
of exercises that you can be doing NOW to be recovering your leg strength
& flexibility. At least ONE of them will be able to provide that for
you... DO EVERYTHING they offer.
Beyond that... you can be working on your splits... and your handstands...
and probably (???) your back-bridge arch-stands. Check with your doctor
about the arch-stands and make sure it's OK for the leg. By focusing on
developing your MOST BASIC skills and positions you'll be enhancing your
foundation for tumbling and will be able to regain your advanced skills
MOST rapidly when the time comes. By practicing DAILY at home you'll increase
your chances of being able to jump right back into full-scale tumbling
as soon as your Doctor says it's 'OK.'
Have fun, be safe, push HARD
