Josh recovering well

Somerset and Scotland bowler, Josh Davey is beginning his rehabilitation following recent surgery.

The 31-year-old, who recently committed his future to the Club, outlines why the procedure was undertaken.

“Unfortunately, I picked up a groin injury at the World Cup,” he said. “I was managing the issue towards the end of the summer, but it flared up towards the end of the World Cup.

“Initially, I had a surgical procedure in November to address the issue. I’ve come back pretty well form that, but it didn’t really quite remedy all the symptoms that I was getting, so I recently had a follow up surgery, which the consultant feels will give me the best chance to progress with my recovery.”

Josh outlines what happens now.

“The medical staff are confident that recovery should take about six weeks,” he explained. “So hopefully I can be ready for pre-season.

“There is now a rest period, which will be followed by a slow build up of getting movement patterns and strength back. Then there will be some more S&C work before I can get back to bowling again.

“I love bowling, but it’s important not to jump back into it too quickly. It’s a long season, so it’s vital that I get myself right first. When you’re looking down the barrel of seven months of bowling you need to make sure that your body is ready to go before you start. Coming back too soon and putting yourself on the side-lines for longer is not what anyone wants in this situation.

“I’ve got some of the best minds in the business working with me on this, so I’m sure we will be fine!”
