When rehabilitating from a injury you need to try and reduce the pain involved which will help in a faster recovery. You must stay positive in your thoughts and keep anxiety to a minimum. You should have short and long term goals to heal and recover from your injury. You need to choose to succeed and work on getting through the pain from your rehab program. Being negative will only cause a slow healing process and can cause more pain.
Deep breathing will help you relax and get oxygen to the injured area which will lesson the pain. Meditation of soothing imagery such as laying on a beach, floating in space, should be included with your deep breathing. Therapeutic massage of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments is also vital to help you recover. You need to acknowledge the pain and what area of the body it is centered in. This will help your mind focus on the internal healing process.
