First of all, it is important to get the correct medical treatment to minimise the damage and to avoid that the injury becomes permanent. It is therefore very important that you take your own welfare into consideration and don’t rush your rehabilitation.
Of course, you should be careful not to start training or playing again before you are fully fit. It will do you no good to start prematurely because you feel obligated to do so. It is your body and therefore your responsibility to make sure that it is not overly strained.
How to Report an Injury
