The Natural Way to Heal Sports Injuries

29 February 2016 21:30


Sports injuries most often affect the soft tissues associated with proper functioning of the joints and general movement, including muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. These injuries include sprains, strains, dislocation or partial dislocation (subluxation), torn ligaments or tendons, bone fractures and repetitive stress injuries. The most common cause of sports injuries are failure to warm up or cool down properly before or after exercise, structural abnormalities (for example abnormal joint stricture) and weak connective tissues. Some injuries can become chronic, particularly repetitive stress injuries.

Sports injuries are a very common occurrence and many of them can be treated without major medical intervention, the exception being bone fractures and torn connective tissue. After a sports injury a series of metabolic processes often known as inflammation take place. One of the major concerns when treating inflammation is capillary blood flow, so the RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) treatment method is usually recommended.

As the smallest blood vessels in the body, capillaries are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrition to the cells and removing waste. After an injury some of these capillaries may be damaged, making them incapable of carrying fluid to and from the damaged tissue. This leads to a fibrin build up and a blockage “walling off” the damaged area. The result is pain, swelling, redness, heat, and loss of function.

To repair the capillaries, and reduce bruising, swelling and pain some type of anti-inflammatory drug is often recommended. However, as the desired effect is to reduce the amount of fibrin in the damaged capillary, improve circulation, and speed healing this can be done very effectively with Protease (Proteolytic enzymes) instead of pharmaceutical drugs. Once in the blood stream, protease digests the fibrin network and enhances blood flow. Additionally, these same protease enzymes have been known to stimulate phagocytes (cells that ingest foreign particles and debris) and accelerate elimination of work by way of the lymphatic system.

Enzymedica's Enzyme Supplementation Suggestions:
• High Potency Digestive Formula, such as DIGEST GOLD™ with every meal.
• Anti-inflammatory Formula, such as REPAIR GOLD™, away from meals.
• Serratiopeptidase Formula, such as SERRAGOLD™ , away from meals.
For chronic sports injury conditions:
• pH balancing formula, such as pH BASIC™ before bed.
• High Protease enzyme formula, such as VIRASTOP™, three to four times a day until healed.
