Injury Repair and Recovery
Repetitive Strains May Result in Tenosynovitis in the Tendons
Repetitive sprains have the potential to trigger an inflammatory process throughout the damaged tissue. This is called tenosynovitis which occurs in the tendons. Specific peptides for tendon repair may be obtained to assist with the healing process.
You have sustained an injury – now what?
Following a sports injury, outside of the throbbing pain, swelling appendages and feelings of anquish, the reality will eventually kick in regarding the time requirement for healing and repair.
The time it takes to recover from any kind of injury is determined by many factors based on the seriousness of the injury itself and the age, health and fitness of the individual who has been hurt. Why Age? Growth Hormone secretion typically declines as we age. It is our growth hormone that helps facilitate a faster recovery, thus those who are over the age of 30 years old may find their recovery rate has slowed down since their 20’s. Injury peptides have the ability to increase levels of GH which in turn improves the rate of recovery.
Injury repair peptides facilitate the increased rate of tissue repair.
Peptides for injury repair and recovery work by sending the appropriate messaging to the body to increase the speed of tissue repair. Growth hormone secreted from the anterior pituitary gland works well to stimulate connective tissue production. Specific peptides such as Thymosin Beta 4 has also been shown helpful in the promotion of healing injury on a cellular level, reducing pain and inflammation, alongside regenerating cellular tissue efficiently so that you can get back to your physical activities. Ipamorelin, a growth hormone releasing peptide is also efficient at increasing cellular repair and regeneration.CJC-1295 another peptide with healing benefits has been shown to shorten injury recovery time.
Common injuries that benefit from peptides include:
Muscular Tears, Torn Ligaments, Torn Cartilage, Soft Tissue Injury, Tendonitis, Sprains and Strains. Please note that results will vary per patient.
Common areas where injury occurs in sport or exercise:
- Knee Ligament (ACL Tear)
- Shoulder / rotator cuff Injury
- Tennis elbow
- Wrist sprain
- Hip Flexor Strain
- Hamstring strain
