During our appointments, we discuss why 6 weeks for recovery is really important after an episode of pain.

Watch the video or read below to find how to find out why.


Why 6 weeks for Recovery?

There are a few things that happen in the body that we can’t change.

One of them is that pain will switch muscles off and will stop them working as well or as efficiently as there were before the episdoe of your pain.

The other general rule is that it takes 6 weeks for the muscles to build up and start getting stronger.

Because it takes 6 weeks for the muscles to start to show their changes, then it stands to reason you need to keep doing the exercises for at least 6 weeks (if not a little bit longer!).

Best Chance of Recovery

The advice is there to give you the best chance of recovery and less risk of relapsing. After an episode of pain, keep in mind the 6 weeks for recovery.
