Wolfe’s Law is the very basis of post rehab and strength training. Wolfe postulated that if we stress connective tissue it will become stronger. Strengthen training actually makes bone, muscle, tendons, ligaments, muscle and even cartilage stronger. Even connective tissue has limits. This limit is known as the “physiologic threshold”. The physiologic limit or threshold is the amount of force the tissue may absorb before damage occurs. Tissue damage occurs when the force exceeds the limit. Sprains, strains and ruptures are examples of exceeding the physiologic limit or threshold. Wolfe’s Law is fundamental in understanding the injury process and post rehab program progression guidelines. Click the link below to listen to this post rehab tip.
