Healing Time Expectations!

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

Having realistic expectations about recovery time is a huge key to getting over an injury. Truth is, the musculoskeletal system takes time to heal and we need to be patient enough to let it heal correctly.

This chart shows the AVERAGE time it takes to heal from an injury. However, there are a lot of factors that play a role here. Some of the factors that could change these numbers are

  • Length of time between initial onset and getting help

  • Age

  • Diet

  • Fitness Level

  • Consistency

  • Attitude

  • Giving it time to rest

  • Hydration

Young people are going to recover faster than older people. If you have a crappy diet, it will take longer. The more consistent you are with recovery, the quicker you’ll get back to doing the things you love. And ultimately, the more you care about the injury and seriously want to recover, the faster the process will take.

If you’re struggling with an injury and want to get back in the game, give us a call today! We’d be happy to help you get on the path to success.
