Just read its pretty short.
I guess its pretty much to the mark. I'm still not sure of the extent of my injury but its pretty clear the doctor gave me NSAIDs because I was complaining about pain and not because of any specific treatment plan.
Having read an article before showing how british GPs treat tendon complaints its pretty standard here.
rest for a few weeks -> NSAIDs -> phsio
surgery if its serious
I guess this article is saying avoid SAIDs, rest then phsio without pain upto collagen turnover naturally is the best bet for recovery for small injuries.
I've read somewhere turnover can be as long as 300-500 days.
