Must-Read Tactics For Faster Injury Recovery!

Monday, October 7, 2019


Devastating! That is what it can be when we have worked so hard to incorporate exercise into our daily lives, and then we fall foul of an injury. After all, when you are injured, there is pain, and you can't burn as many calories as you are used to. Oh, and all of those lovely endorphins that regularly flow around your system reduced as well. Of course, this means that recovering from an injury as fast as possible is a top priority. A topic you can read more about in the post below.



Rebalance activity and rest

The first strategy you need to use if you want to get over an injury quicker is to rebalance the activities you are doing. What this means is cutting down or stopping exercise completely and resting. Something that can help your body to repair, as well as prevent further damage.

In fact, the only activity you should be doing is the physical therapy exercises provided by your medical team. The reason being that these will be designed to rehabilitate your body and so can help shorten the recovery process considerably.

More sleep

It may be a little more challenging to sleep when you have an injury. This is because there will be a pain to manage, and you won't be wearing yourself out so much during the day. However, it is crucial to remember that sleep is an essential part of healing and injury because it is when we are unconscious that the body rebuilds and repairs itself.

With that in mind, if getting off to sleep or staying asleep is problematic during an injury, you may wish to try some strategies that will make it easier. One, in particular, that can help is eating protein before you go to bed in the form of turkey or cottage cheese. This being helpful because your body will divert all its every into digesting this type of food. Therefore helping to create that feeling of exhaustion that can send you off to the land of nod!

Seek treatment

While it may be tempting to ignore an injury and hope that it will go away on its own. This is rarely the case. In fact, injuries that do not receive the right treatment can turn into long term weakness that continues to impact on your athletic performance.

To that end, getting checked out by a medical professional is essential, as is following the advice that they give you. Additionally using products that can help support your recovery such as ice packs, heat packs and even these Legion Compression Socks is a smart idea. The latter working to speed the healing process by providing support and increased blood flow to the affected area.

Tune into your body

Finally, if you want to give yourself the best shot at healing in the shortest time possible, you really need to learn to listen to your body from the inside.

What this means is you need to learn the difference between the sensations you get when healthily pushing your body, and pain warnings. In fact, doing this can help you prevent any more injuries once you have recovered as well.
