Cardiovascular Exercise is Critical!
I keep telling patients that cardiovascular exercise is essential for effective injury repair. Individuals who do not exercise, who work in polluted environments, or who smoke tend to heal at a much slower rate. Aerobic exercise (walking, cycling, running, and swimming) is the fastest way to increase the strength and function of your cardiovascular system. The problem is, most people never work their cardiovascular system hard enough to actually experience these changes.
