Injury Recovery Support
Injury recovery is always rate limited by something. The question is what…
This HowTo provides a general guideline to optimize healing for injuries with primary focus on joint and connective tissue. We assert there are three cofactors in injury in any healing rate:
Cells know how to put themselves back together. The challenge is to optimize the environment so they can do it as quickly as possible.
Rapid healing is a survival advantage — and is not fundamentally limited by the organism, but by the efficiency of the organism repairing itself.
Several factors that govern the injury process:
Accelerated recovery therapy involves three principles:
Secondary damage that develops after the initial trauma, usually represents the bulk of tissue. Minimizing the “secondary damage” by controlling initial inflammation limits the amount of healing required. Anything which reduces secondary damage reduces healing time because it makes for less healing.
An initial trauma causes plasma and lymphocytes to flow to an area. This movement brings the both nutrients and oxygen to support the healing process.
Plasma oxygen saturation has two influences:
These factors control the healing speed. Individuals with high plasma oxygen levels and successful digestion heal much faster, up to 10x, than expected:
Diffusion Nutrient Pathways
Connective tissue does not have capillaries which bring blood close to connective tissue. Nutrients and oxygen must reach these tissues by other mechanisms.
Note the bulk of the connective tissues. The efficiency of diffusion mechanisms control nutrient and oxygen availability to connective tissue.
From a therapy view, restoration of diffusion pathway performance accelerates healing of non-vascularized tissue. The Model:
