Albert, I think you may be very right about this, but I'm not certain yet. To me your conjecture is also related closely to MeLLoDraMa's theory expressed by him yesterday:
Whenever I try something new and push it I get the RA soreness the next day....go back at it.....slightly less inflammation.....by 3rd or 4th day body has adapted to that activity. It is tough on the mind to know your body will have that reaction and not get alarmed.
I'm not certain that either of these is exactly true, but they may very well be. And if so, it may be the key to successful rehab. I'm tending to agree with both of them, and will be trying to apply both, and observing the consequences.
What I've found out is that pushing the envelope a bit athletically has provided some gains. I continue to theorize based upon my recovery from this injury and others that athletes have to continue some form of sport specific activity during recovery in order to allow the injury site to heal in a manner that will allow for future athletic activity..
It seems to me that both of them are very important conjectures that could benefit all of us. And are very worthy of discussion, and possible refutation or refinement, if someone else can compare them with their actual personal experiences to date or in the future.
