After working with Fortius Sport & Health sports physiotherapist Ryan Murray and strength and conditioning coach Daniel Kenzie in Burnaby, British Columbia, Lin is taking a holistic approach to his body and is remaking his entire game. “I’m not just looking at whether my knee will hold up,” Lin says. “I’m looking at whether I have done enough to completely change preexisting movement patterns. Everything down to my shot, the way I run, the way I defend, the way I move, cut, accelerate, decelerate, everything will look – it won’t look to the eye, or on TV any different – but it will be very different in terms of how I do it, and where I move from and what muscles I’m using and what tendons and joints I’m not using. I definitely learned more about science and anatomy than I ever thought I would. But I’m excited, and I feel like I’m moving better and it’s going to help my game.”
Storyline: Jeremy Lin Injury
Lin had to learn how to walk again, jog, run, cut and jump, essentially reprogramming his muscle memory. Several exercises included movement with a resistance band to help Lin perform basketball techniques on the court better such as a step-back jumper and gaining balance off the dribble quicker. Lin also did water aerobics and received acupuncture treatment as part of his rehab, according to social media postings. Now, Lin is running, jumping, cutting and shooting (with minor shot adjustments after changing the positioning of his feet). The next step in his comeback is absorbing contact. “It’s going to make me better, it’s going to make me faster, make me more efficient,” Lin says. “The only hard part is I have to, effectively, undo 29 years of movement; that’s the hardest part.”
