The scenario probably applies to 90% of us. Let’s have a look at why this is only solving half the problem and what impact this has on your body.
A simple soft tissue injury (muscle strain, ligament sprain, tendon bruising) can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks to repair and heal. It is true that the pain will probably be resolved by the end of this period. However, that is only half the equation solved. The injury, if not managed properly, can cause weakness of the soft tissues and joints around the region.
On top of that, your body will start adopting a different posture or walking pattern during this 2-8 weeks period to compensate for the injured region.
The net effects from this mismanagement of injury could result in:
- Pain in adjacent region from compensation. Eg. Neck pain from shoulder injury.
- Higher chance of reinjury due to weakness in the new structure.
Full recovery means more than getting rid of your pain. So next time you injure yourself, consider seeking professional help to help with your complete recovery.
