Once some people have gotten used to exercising it can actually be hard to stop. We’re all afraid of losing progress or perhaps not getting back into the swing of things. However, if you’ve injured yourself either through life or some type of fitness activity or if you’ve undergone a surgery, you need to let your body recoup before jumping back into the swing of things.

In the long run, your body will be better off. It will be stronger, especially if you follow the advice and exercises provided by a physical therapist. If you are someone who exercises, generally, you not only recoup faster, but when you return to exercise you rebuild faster. It’s not like starting from square one again, although it may feel that way in the beginning.

So give your body time and trust that you will get back there.
