Healing Rates

Help, I’m injured!

How long until I can play football/go skiing/paddle-boarding again?

When we’re injured, we just want to get back to our normal activity as soon as physically possible.

Sometimes it’s a minor issue and we get better within a couple of weeks, and other times it seems to take ages.

This can be because different tissues heal at different rates, muscles and ligaments can heal quite quickly whereas tendons, bones and nerves take a bit longer.

Lots of other things can affect healing too; like doing too much or not enough exercise, not getting enough sleep, dehydration, poor nutrition and general health status, so it’s very important to take care of yourself regardless of how small or large your injury is!
