I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I can see very little downside to strengthening the body after an injury.

I can't see that the opposite - allowing it to weaken - is a sound choice. Obviously injuries are all unique, and should be treated as such, but I don't like the idea of allowing my body to get weaker. I want strength and health as I age.
