Injury has consequences. At the initial time of injury tissues are stretched and squeezed beyond what they can withstand and this stretching and compression causes cells to rupture and start a cascade of inflammation chemical signals that make the area hurt, red, swollen, and hot. Eventually the swelling and pain will cause a loss of function. Hopefully this function returns, but what you do about it makes all the difference.
If the injury is minor, the healing will occur and function will return. If the injury is more moderate, function may be limited for a much longer period of time and this loss of function can become permanent. When the injury is severe, the scar tissue that is created from the “healing” process can lead to constant and chronic pain, loss of function and eventually, disability.
Fortunately, there has been a tremendous amount of research conducted about the proper care and treatment of injured tissue. In the past, bedrest was often recommended for joint injuries and back pain. We now know that bedrest actually increases the chronic nature of pain and increases the likelihood of permanent problems. Movement as early as possible in non-fractured injuries and post surgically is very important if a complete return of strength, flexibility and function is expected.
With the right type of early treatment and therapy, pain can reduce much faster, swelling and range of motion will return much quicker than it would in the ”normal” healing process. If you have been injured in Windsor, Loveland, Greeley, Fort Collins, or anywhere in Northern Colorado, you need to know that there is a very big difference in who you choose to do your injury rehabilitation.
