Getting hurt is the absolute worst. Whether you're a pro or a weekend warrior, getting back on your feet takes time, and the process can be one of self-doubt, frustration, and impatience. On the flip side, anyone that's been through this knows that you'll eventually get better. If I could tell my younger self anything, it would be exactly that: "You're going to get better. Have a positive attitude. Work hard and be patient."
Rather than freaking out, I wanted to provide this mini guide to help you think through your rehab. Of course, not every injury, rehab process, healing time, etc. is the same. Regardless, I like to break the process down into three main areas:

Having an understanding of these will help ease your anxiety and hopefully provide a more thoughtful (and pleasant) rehab. Happy healing!
