We hear this comment in the clinic all the time.
Recent research shows that early intervention is vital.
Jorven et al, (2000) conducted a study on two groups of people who had sustained a muscle injury recently. One group commenced treatment immediately while the other group rested for twenty-one days and then commenced treatment.
It was found that the group that commenced treatment immediately was nearly back to normal in strength and mobility by day twenty-one. By day forty-two the group that initially rested for three weeks still lagged considerably behind in muscle and mobility. It has proven to be vital to start treatment early.
