Tissue Repair- Did you overdo it this summer?

Summer is great for biking, hiking, marathons and much more. Sometimes we overdo it a bit and cause damage to our tissues. The most common soft tissues injured are muscles, tendons, and ligaments. … Soft tissue injuries fall into two basic categories: acute injuries and overuse injuries. Acute injuries are caused by a sudden trauma, such as a fall, twist, or blow to the body.

In healing soft tissue damage there are four points called the HARM factors that you do not want to do:

  1. Heat: Increases swelling and bleeding. Avoid heat packs, a hot bath and saunas.
  2. Alcohol: Increases swelling and bleeding. Plus, it can delay healing.
  3. Running or Exercise: Aggravates the injury which increases pain, swelling and bleeding. …
  4. Massage: Increases swelling and bleeding.

Physiotherapy can help tremendously during the different phases of recovery, but nutrition has a part to play also! Foods rich in these nutrients can help you heal: Omega 3 essential fatty acids, vitamin C, Magnesium, protein, proteolytic enzymes and herbal anti-inflamatories.
