How to heal after an exercise related injury
The most important part of recovering from an injury is rest. Taking the time to heal your injury is a significant part of being able to exercise again. Continuing to exercise without correctly healing an injury will damage you even more. Take the time to rest and heal by doing the following:
According to the American College of Sports Medicine, treatment starts with an approach called PRICE, a variation of RICE, to limit swelling and speed healing:
Protect against any further injury.
Restrict activity for 48 to 72 hours.
Ice the injured area for 15 to 20 minutes every 60 to 90 minutes.
Compress the area with an elastic bandage or other compression aid.
Elevate the injured area to minimize swelling.
Practice these tips for exercise induced injuries and you will be back in the gym before you know it. Always consult with your doctor if pain persists.
