Training Injured Clients

We've all been through this. A client sprains an ankle or hurts their shoulder, sees a doctor and gets told to stay out of the gym for 4-6 weeks to rest the injured area.
As trainers, we get frustrated with the doctor and think “why do they say foolish stuff like this”.
The reality is that unless the client has a serious accident they are at best partially injured. When a client or athlete gets injured I tell them you are generally 25% hurt and 75% healthy. I encourage them to focus on the healthy parts. If it's an arm, you still have another one and, two legs. If it's a leg, you still have two arms and one leg. In any case, training shouldn't stop.
