The all-time best golfer Tiger Woods just opened up about his recovery following a car crash he experienced earlier this year.
According to details, the athlete has revealed just how difficult his recovery from this accident has been, detailing his experiences though surgery and rehabilitation.
“This has been an entirely different animal. I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced,” Woods told Golf Digest.
When the magazine asked Woods if he would ever be able to play golf again, the athlete had no comment.
“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my number one goal right now: walking on my own,” all what Woods had to say.
In February, the golfer endured a single-vehicle rollover car accident as his car hit the center divider of the road and ultimately cut through a tree and landed on the side of the road.
He had been taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center following the crash, and trauma specialists said that the golfer had “suffered significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity.”
In a statement, Dr. Anish Mahajan explained that “Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia.”
“Additional injuries to the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling,” the doctor added.
