Steyn tweets picture of recovery 'home'

2016-01-14 14:16

Cape Town - Proteas speedster Dale Steyn has tweeted a picture of his "home" - for two hours a day for the next week.

Steyn, current sidelined from the SA v England Test series with a shoulder injury, on Thursday tweeted a picture of himself in a hyperbaric chamber as he looks to speed up his recovery.

A hyperbaric chamber delivers 100% oxygen - higher than atmospheric pressure - which is designed to heal injuries quicker.

Springbok fullback Andre Joubert famously used a similar chamber during his recuperation from a hand injury during the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa.

Steyn was quick to correct his original "14 days" rehabilitation tweet - which would've likely ruled him out of the final Test at SuperSport Park in Centurion starting on Friday, January 22.

In a later tweet, Steyn changed the time frame to 7 days, which, hopefully from a Proteas point of view, puts him in contention for selection.
