Everyone ends up with an injury at one time or another in their skating career. Some injuries are minuscule, but sometimes we injure ourselves pretty severely on or off the ice. We get medical attention and most of the time lengthy physical therapy. What happens next? Best thing to do is get an official medical clearance from your physician clearing you to get back to your sport with full range or with limitations. That will help your coach plan your lessons accordingly with a lower chance of you re-injuring yourself. Your coach will also be able to get you back in the game more quickly with good planning.
You can search the internet for medical clearance forms and pre-participation form, or you can find great forms on the U.S. Figure Skating website.
