Took a very bad fall in a soccer game recently, and had to spend several days in the hospital.
X-rays and CT were clear, but using crutches as bearing weight on my right side is rather difficult.
Likely a soft tissue injury, with damage to my sacrioiliac joint. Not sure exactly how long I will be out, and have some PT planned, but I am guessing it will be a minimum of 1-2 weeks.
What can I do to minimize muscle loss? Should I continue to eat a lot? Try to do some upper body work--and, if so, what would that be? Just rest as much as possible and hope to get back to the gym as soon as I can?
Injuries always get me down when I have to miss gym time. Thanks for any suggestions.
