I have weakness in one of my legs in flexion (i.e. standing up on toes) due to a herniated disc; since got a micro discectomy and relieved pressure off the nerve, but the weakness is still present week 2 post op (not unusual I hear).
My question: is it beneficial or damaging to train myself to force through as hard as I can to try to stand on my weak foot? Will this help it grow signal again, or otherwise prevent normal recovery?
I feel like I want to train that foot by trying hard. Not sure if it's advised.
