Muscle or ligament injuries are caused by over exerting muscles or ligaments. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in a certain activity. For example, runner’s knee is a painful condition generally associated with running, while tennis elbow is a form a repetitive stress injury at the elbow, although it does often occur with tennis players.
A bruise or contusion is damage to small blood vessels which causes bleeding within the tissues. A muscle strain is a small tear of muscle fibers and a ligament sprain is a small tear of ligament tissue. The body’s response to these injuries is the same in the initial five day period immediately following the traumatic incident – inflammation.
All of these traumatic injuries cause damage to the cells that make up the soft tissues. The dead and damaged cells release chemicals, which initiate an inflammatory response. Small blood vessels are damaged and opened up, producing bleeding within the tissue. In the body’s normal reaction, a small blood clot is formed in order to stop this bleeding and from this clot special cells (called fibroblasts) begin the healing process by laying down scar tissue. The inflammatory stage is therefore the first phase of healing.
Manganese is used in our CHF #10 Spor Injure. Manganese is a mineral found in large quantities in both plant and animal matter. Only trace amounts of this element can be found in human tissue. Manganese is predominantly stored in the bones, liver, kidney, and pancreas. It aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function.
Patient Pam Weber states “I have been working as a reflexologist for 24 years. The last 6 years I was really happy to have this formula because of wear and tear on joints of fingers, neck and shoulders. I have taken many formulas and have sought natural health for over 40 years because of scoliosis when I was young. I have managed to stay healthy and I know this formula has made a real difference. I noticed within 4 days. When I have run out I also notice the difference. Thank you for your efforts in bringing us excellent products.”
