Since surgery, Hendrickson has been rehabbing six to eight hours a day with team physical therapists at the US Ski Team’s Center of Excellence in Park City.
“Every day in the gym I was dreaming about the days when I would be back on the jumps. Now that I have made it to that point, it is a weight lifted off my shoulders. I, of course, didn't do this alone. My medical team, coaches, and all my supporters pushed me to make this possible and I can't thank them enough.
“Of course, my knee gets sore after a hard day of training but that is to be expected and it’s nothing I can't push past. I am still taking it day by day. I know I am still not 100 percent. However everything is going great so far.”
