You Recover Faster When You Are Young

Sprained my right knee while swimming in 2020

That's what I get for not warming up...

It was one of those knee sprains that didn't heal properly on its own.

My doctor said, "Wait a couple of months, and see if it heals first."

It didn't.

He referred me to a physical therapist who scheduled me for a 12-week treatment.

I was 90% recovered in 3 weeks.

The physical therapist said, "Wow I can't believe you recovered so quickly! It must be good to be young."

She told me I didn't have to come in for the rest of the treatment and gave me a set of exercises to practice at home.

A lot of my friends between the age of 22 - 30 complain about how old they've gotten.

I'm still feeling quite young, and I'm definitely going to take more advantage of that fact.

Takeaways:

  1. If you are older than 25, stretch and warm-up before you exercise.

  2. If you are younger than 30, take BIGGER risks because you'll recover more quickly if things don't work.
