In brief: Depends on cause

This totally depends on the cause of the atrophy.
If it's due to casting from a break, then as soon as your cleared to start exercising again. If it's due to nerve damage or some other disease, then possibly never. This is something to discuss with your doctor to see what your best course of action might be.
