So many times we are confronted with patients with injuries or post surgical recovery, and always the question arises regarding”How long will i need to rest”.
Here is a great example where 212 million dollars is on the line over the next few years for a 34 year old.
The moral of the story is, recovery has to take place and some times that might require abstinence and or moderation. This can be even harder to encourage in those who see their recreational activities as their reward or stress relief for busy lives. It is even more vital in children and youths as continuing to stress healing tissue can lead to long term weakness and scar forming reducing vital flexibility.
