makes sense

It makes sense to rest through the immediate post-trauma period and not do weight bearing exersizes, but as your expereince shows, strengthening has got to be involved in the treatment as well. The debates on trauma vs. atrophy are simplistic if one takes only one side. Both factors are involved in most cases, I am willing to wager, and it makes sense to treat both with strategically timed rest, and strategically timed and executed exercise.
