Injury Recovery: Treating the Phases of Muscle Healing


Proper treatment of sports injuries is necessary to facilitate healing and get you back on track with your active lifestyle.
Addressing each unique phase of muscle healing requires a different approach to ensure a full recovery.


Sometimes referred toms in active people.

During the week-long destruction phase, the body sends eicosanoids tocol at this point, and immobilize the injured area as much as possible. Avoid over-the-counter NSAIDs, as these may prevent beneficial inflammation from occurring.


Your body begins the cleanup process about two days after you sustain an injury. Macrophages enter the area to form, creating bonds between tissues.

Muscle repair can take six to supplement with l-glutamine, arginine, MSM and sulfur-based amino acids at this time.


As muscles and connective tissue begin to get stronger, the body enters the remodeling phase. This usually takes place around two weeks after you get hurt while repair processes are still under way. This is the point at which physical therapy and proper movement is critical. Without guided treatment, new muscle fibers can form in a jumble or tangle instead of lining up in a natural way.

The remodeling phase is the time when scar tissue begins togenic herbs can assist the body in dealing with the stress of recovering from damage.

Working with a qualified physical therapist and a doctor more difficult activities until you’re right on track with your fitness goals.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
