Yes, go slow: If you feel ready at 4 weeks, then you may try. Go slowly and if there is any discomfort or pain, try different positions. If the discomfort persists, wait another couple weeks.

Pain: It will hurt! immediately ice the area for 20-30 minutes and do this 2 or 3 times the rest of the day. Turmeric is a safe and helpful anti-inflammatory, i suggest 400-500mg twice daily of a product standardized to at least 95% curcuminoids.
A 30-year-old member asked:

Muscles Foods: Clean sources of protein are best. Grassfed beef, free range chicken and free range eggs. Protein shakes can be used as well, i prefer an unsweetened whey protein that comes from grassfed cows. Preventing injury is best done with doing warmup prior to activity and the herb turmeric. It has been shown in recent studies to help tendonitis. 400-500mg twice daily of a standardized curcuminoid product.
