Some things aren't supposed to be rushed. Rehab is one of them. You may remember when I coached a couple weeks of classes with my arm in a sling. It seems like ancient history at this point, but it was only just 10 weeks ago that I had shoulder surgery. Since then I have been going to a physical therapist twice a week and doing things on my own to work toward a speedy recovery.
Ten weeks is a long time, but in the context of rehab it's the blink of an eye. Only recently have I been able to move my arm through a near complete range of motion. Strength, or lack thereof, is another story... I snatched a PVC pipe the other day, so that's a start. For an impatient person like myself, I have learned a great deal about letting things run their course. It's going to be awhile until I'm back on the platform, but that's okay
So what's the takeaway here? To take your time, obviously. If you do CrossFit (or do any physical activity) for long enough you're going to incur an injury here and there. Be smart with how you nurse yourself back to health. It's one thing to grit your teeth and fight through a tough workout, it's another thing to push yourself to the point of injuring yourself. Not sure if you should scale a movement or take a rest day? Your coaches are here to help!
