Treatment and Prevention of Sports Injuries & Secondary Arthritis
Joint injuries are inevitable for those involved in sports, whether they are professionals or amateurs. Daily workouts hurt their joints while they can also become “damaging” for surrounding tissue.
When we talk about “sports injuries”, apart from the obvious ones like a fracture, there is a more threatening form of athletic injury that can remain hidden for years before eventually revealing the full extent of its damage. This type of injury, which is the result of daily pressure exerted on the joints during training, can lead to arthritis and pain in the long run.
Each of our 147 joints has a cartilage that protects the bones from coming in contact with each other. This cartilage is receiving the greatest part of the pressure during intense training. Deterioration of this cartilage also results in the development of arthritis.
When arthritis occurs as a result of injuries, it is generally referred to as “secondary” osteoarthritis. This simply means that the alteration of the cartilage has started from a joint injury.
But what does this have to do with athletes? Athletes have an increased risk of secondary osteoarthritis as a result of athletic injury.
There are two options: Simple treatment of symptoms or prevention of problems with joints and continuous protection.
The usual approach: Simple treatment of symptoms!
The most common approach is to take analgesic or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, this is nothing more than a simple symptom management, and NSAIDs are not recommended for long-term use because of their side effects in the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular system.
The right approach that is recommended: Preventing joints problems and continuous protection!
More and more athletes understand the value of protecting their joints. Instead of simply dealing to the pain occasionally felt by stress and possible injuries, they seek solutions that will help them improve and prolong the health of their joints.
The solution lies in the new innovative product, SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID, which according to clinical trials has a three-fold effect: Pain reduction, reduction of stiffness and protection of cartilage from wear.
SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID contains a unique egg membrane composition made with sophisticated patented technology, known as NEM® (Natural Eggshell Membrane). The egg shell membrane is subjected to a specific process to obtain natural glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulphate and collagen in proportions and form that are extensively utilized by the human body contributing to the health of the joints. It is a renowned product in America and in several European countries, and is now available in pharmacies in our country.
Clinical research in both patients and healthy people have shown that daily intake of 1 pill helps the joints remain healthy while a more effective recovery after exercise was achieved. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory action it helps reduce pain and stiffness of the joints making it possible to continue the exercise. The results were visible within 7-10 days when received on a daily basis, giving a solution to those who strain their joints in sporting activities.
The mechanism of SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID is based on the natural treatment of an inflammation. In osteoarthritis, inflammation occurs when, due to joint destruction, fragments of collagen and other components are released into the body and activate a mechanism. The tissue may suffer injury if the inflammation is not treated in time. NEM® releases small amounts of ingredients gradually, training the body to cope with an inflammation in time to stop it, to prevent pain and to allow agility again.
As a result, SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID quickly addresses problems such as pain and stiffness, helping to better and faster restoration after exercise, while protecting and preventing cartilage damage by making joints healthy. It helps protect the body and restore the health of the joints.
