We like to think of ourselves in today’s world as more knowledgeable and better able to make wise decisions about almost anything in general, especially matters that have been helped and informed by science. After all, with new information coming in at an increasingly fast rate, it’s hard to imagine science NOT being constantly developed and constantly informing improvements in the way we do things. And yet we continue to make some crucial but critical mistakes, mostly having to do with underestimating the value of certain things that are actually of vital importance to us. From this perspective, many find themselves with a joint injury and we are going to take a look at 10 ways to promote faster joint injury recovery.
We never really think about the way our body works until we’re confronted with situations where the body, or parts of it, stops working the way it should. Loved ones or coworkers may suffer a heart attack or stroke or similarly heavy sickness. Or we ourselves might be subject to a particular injury that forces us to reevaluate both our lifestyle and our options for fast injury recovery.
The body has a natural way of recovering from an injury. Even if you do nothing at all, your body will naturally heal from a joint injury or any injury for that matter. But there is a faster way to make your body respond to healing.
Amino Acids for muscle gain – These supplements reduce atrophy (or muscle loss). Amino acids are recommended by doctors after a surgery. Our body does not produce essential amino acids. We only get them from meat, eggs, soy or amino acid powders.
Vitamin C and E (helps speed up wound healing) – Take Vitamin C and E to boost immune system. It aids in bone and cartilage formation. Injury from ACL can be improved by these vitamins.
Flavanoids – These are anti-oxidants which help in reducing inflammation and prevent cellular damage. You get them from grapes and berries.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate – These are best known for healing and repairing knee cartilage. These are also best known to improve arthritis conditions and prevent further knee problems.
When it comes to making your body heal faster, you should listen to experts, consult doctors and listen to what your body tells you. The wisest decision that you can take is to get all the help that you can from what you have read. You cannot just “run it off” when it comes to a complicated injury. “Running it off” won’t do you any good.
Do not overdo things as well. Although you have all the supplements, the pain killers, the food intake and the therapy, you still have to wait for your body to respond to healing. Do not compare your healing period to other people’s healing time. Each body responds differently to healing. Be patient. Wait.
Even if the above ways for fast injury recovery are generally safe, it is still recommended to consult your doctor to prevent further injuries. Some medications might not be good for you or you might be allergic to some supplements.
Move forward to a better articulation of your joints.
