Although rest may be indicated immediately after an acute injury, most musculoskeletal injuries will recover faster with controlled activity. It is essential to make a correct diagnosis before determining the amount and duration of rest and activity. With a physician-directed rehabilitation program, your recovery will be facilitated and optimized so that you can return to your pre-injury lifestyle including vocational and avocational activities and minimizing the risk for re-injury.
My doctor said I should rest this injury. Is there anything else I can do?
