Pain is the body’s way of signaling that you are overexerting and/or have injured a specific part of yourself. So, it is important that you control the pain and swelling; allow time for the area to heal and protect it from further damage. Sometimes, an ice pack and rest are all you may need, but constant pain requires medical attention, don’t ignore the pain because you may cause some serious damage to the area.
When the injured area has healed, the next steps are to 1. recover your range of motion using flexibility exercises specific to your injury and 2. to recover your strength, because muscle weakness happens when muscles are not in use. The end goal is to regain the function of that area and return to full activity.
Follow Chris as he enters the recovery phase of his treatment. It’s not easy knowing what your body was capable of as you struggle to execute moves that were so easy before the injury. But he is mentally and physically ready for this challenge. Remember: You don’t have to train as hard as you can every single day, just train consistently!
