When you suffer from any sort of sports injury it can be painful. Furthermore, it can mean that you won’t be able to go out and play your sport again tomorrow. Or possibly not even next week, or even for a month. It depends on the extent of the injury, and the tissue and muscle or muscles which have been damaged.
There is absolutely no doubt that rest and recuperation can aid recovery from sports injuries, but most people – especially professionals – need to get back to playing their sport as soon as possible. Even if you are not a professional, when you take part in a sport for the purpose of enjoyment and also with the object of keeping your body fit, you will still want to get back to your sport as soon as you can.
