Bedrest is commonly prescribed for back pain; neck pain and joint pain. Counterintuitively bedrest can severely disrupt the healing process of a musculoskeletal injury. Bedrest can cause:
- Joints and muscles deconditioning. When your joints and muscles are not in use, you’ll start losing them. The weakening of the structures can cause more long-term issues.
- Slow down healing. Our joints and muscles required good blood supply to heal up. When blood supply becomes stasis, healing and recovery can slow down.
- More pain and discomfort. Swelling and inflammation can cause pressure build up, which leads to more pain, joint stiffness and discomfort
Bedrest from an injury could cause more harm than good. When it comes to musculoskeletal injuries, movement is the best medicine!
