A new study confirms what many clinicians already know - early rehabilitation of an injury leads to a better outcome.
"Starting rehabilitation 2 days after injury rather than waiting for 9 days shortened the interval from injury to pain-free recovery and return to sports by 3 weeks without any significant increase in the risk of reinjury."
So next time you're injured, get some physical therapy ASAP!
