Jamie on the road to recovery
Jamie Overton has had a successful operation to have a bone spur removed from his left ankle.
The 25-year-old is now beginning the road back to full fitness, as he explained when we spoke to him today.
“I was starting to feel a little discomfort, so it made sense to have it removed,” he said. “No one wants to have an operation, but timing wise it couldn’t really have gone any better. Getting it done three days after the end of the season means that I’ve got plenty of time to get ready for next year.
“The operation was two weeks ago, and it went really well. I’ve had the stitches out this morning, so I’ll be resting up for a week before starting some rehab work.
“To start with we’ll be looking at doing some mobility work and then we’ll gradually build it up with some work in the pool and on an altitude treadmill so that we’re not putting my full weight on it. Then we’ll look at some running before Christmas and hopefully bowling again after Christmas. That should give me plenty of time to be ready for April.”
SCCC Head of Science and Medicine, Jamie Thorpe said: “Jamie has undergone a successful operation to remove the bone spur from his ankle and is now following his rehabilitation programme to ensure he returns to full fitness over the winter period.”Back to News
