Ospreys Physio Chris Towers has confirmed that Adam Jones' rehab is on course following his recent shoulder operation.
The prop underwent surgery last month after suffering a dislocation of the right shoulder during the second Lions V South Africa test match, an operation that usually leads to a six-month lay-off for the injured player. Jones reported back to work today following his delayed summer break, along with his fellow Lions, and he underwent a rigorous check up to assess his condition as he recuperates from his operation. Towers commented:"Adam is now five weeks post-op and there have been no complications and none are envisaged as he progresses his rehab. He will see a specialist next week, and we are anticipating that Adam will then be able to come out of a sling and focus on getting some movement back as well as general strengthening of the joint. "Generally speaking, you are looking at a six month rehab process for this kind of injury and operation. If all goes well, we are hopeful of improving on that but it is far to early to make any kind of predictions and will reassess the situation as we go along." And Jones added:"It's gone well so far, and looking forward, I'm in the hands of the Ospreys medical team for the next four or five months so I'm looking forward to spending lots of hours with Chris Towers, working closely with him and getting to know very well. I couldn't be in better hands, I just want to get back playing rugby and I'm confident that the team here will have me back on the pitch as good as new soon."
