It is the first step for the giant lock towards making his international comeback after suffering the injury on British & Irish Lions duty against Australia the summer.
And despite suffering with injuries he has remained positive and hopes to be on top form by the time Ireland host Scotland in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations next February.
“Last season I was delighted to get back and then earn a place in the Lions squad and really enjoyed that, it was disappointing for me how it finished but that’s life and it’s the same now again," said O'Connell.
"I’ve been back training flat out for the last few weeks so hopefully I’m back playing properly soon.
“It's exciting times with Munster and Ireland so I’m just looking forward to being part of that."
The former Lions captain picked up the injury during the first Test Down Under this summer, ruling him out the rest of the victorious tour.
"It wasn’t the worst injury in the world to pick up, there is still a lot you can do and areas where you can still train," he said.
"I’m just looking forward to getting a full season under my belt and to reach the same fitness I had when I went with the Lions and trying to push on a little bit."
