Good evening Dinda, thank you for the question

The recovery period after an injury in a muscle or bone one of which aims to restore the function and normal physical activity through physical therapy. Indeed, during the acute phase, which is the first few days after injury, it is advisable to immobilize the affected area to prevent recurring injuries, but then it is required to do a gradual exercise or physiotherapy.

The duration of immobilization depends greatly on the severity of the injury. Immobilization causes the muscle to significantly decrease in terms of mass and volume. This is because the metabolism of protein breakdown occurs in the muscle that is not used, so that the muscle will shrink or is called muscle atrophy, and cause its function and strength to decrease. The rate of muscle wasting is 3 times faster than muscle enlargement, so it is not surprising that after long immobillation, muscle atrophy quickly occurs.

The important thing in preventing the rate of muscle wasting is with physiotherapy exercises to re-establish muscle mass and strength. Food also plays an important role in building muscle mass. Exercise is said to help rebuild muscle mass, but the rate cannot be as fast as muscle wasting. The purpose of physiotherapy in this case is to build strength and muscle mass, increase muscle movement, and restore normal muscle function.

Consult with an orthopedic specialist for a treatment plan that suits your current condition.

That's all, hope you can help

Wassalam, Dr. Farah
