Dr. Matt Iseman's Tips to Recovering from Injury
- Evaluation: get it checked out by your doc, most likely as orthopedist. Get them to determine that A) You’re okay to start working out and B) To get a baseline to track your improvement.
- Rehab: start out slowly with exercises targeted at building up the affected area: Low weights and some resistance training. We often get overly aggressive when getting back in the gym and, with a problem joint, you can end up sending yourself back to square one or even worse. Keep the big picture in mind.
- Maintenance: when you get the joint up to speed, figure out a plan to keep it healthy with a plan that won’t overload the joint and also helps build up the supporting muscles. For instance, with back problems, you need to have core work to build up the muscles that take the load off the back.
