Get up for Pulled Muscles and Sprains

 

If you’ve really injured yourself (with shin splints, a pulled muscle, or a sprain, for example), you need downtime to heal; otherwise it’s important to keep moving.

 

“Activating a sore muscle is better than resting it,” says Stephen P. Sayers, PhD, an assistant professor of physical therapy at the University of Missouri Columbia. ”

 

Getting the blood flowing to those muscles will reduce inflammation and help them heal.

 

Choose a less strenuous exercise to do for a few days; then gradually work your way back up to a harder routine.”
