The client has injured his forearm due to overexertion and cannot play the guitar presently. He’s rather distressed and worried that it may be too long before he can go back to playing again.

Question: When will I be able to play again?

Answer: In about two and a half weeks, if you take care of your arm and do not re-injure it.

Outcome: About 15 days after the chart reading his pain had mostly subsided and he started playing again three days after that, that is: 18 days after the chart reading.
