“How soon after a muscle strain or sprain can I begin exercising again?”

This is all dependent upon pain level and an individual’s own body.

Rehab for a sprain should begin at least 72 hours after incurring the injury. Over time, there should be gradual increase in therapy and exercises until there is a complete regression of pain and swelling.
