Early rehabilitation after an acute muscle injury can get you back to your favourite activities faster!
When you strain a lower limb muscle like a calf or a thigh, it is often possible to exercise or load these muscles up in the first couple of days right after the injury.
Surprisingly, muscles can handle significantly more than you think in the first few days of a muscle strain. This recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine supports this view.
In conclusion, early physiotherapy rehabilitation after an acute muscle injury (even if it is severe), can help accelerate the healing process - allowing you to get back to your favourite activities much early than delaying professional intervention.
