Common injuries like pulled muscles, strain, sprains, shoulder injuries, knee injuries and fractures or dislocations will require time and patience.
The 3 stages of recovery from injury:
Phase I—Reduce pain and swelling.
Phase II— Exercise, cardiovascular training.
Phase III—Strength, flexibility, muscular endurance.
Overuse injuries healing for instance requires not using the injured muscle, tendon, ligament, or bone until it has healed and the pain has gone away.
