Stimulating muscle regeneration after injury

Muscle injuries are very common in sports, and of course trauma related injuries. In relation to sport, muscle injuries are renowned in leading to the absence of players in training and matches. It is also appreciated that lower rates of injury during the exercise and sports season lead to better performances of professional sport. Although muscle injuries are considered a major concern in sports medicine, treatment options remain limited. To date, a well-accepted acute treatment strategy of muscle and joint injuries is the “RICE” principle, which comprises rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

The primary aid of treatment is to promote muscle healing, limit scar formation and preventative strengthening and rehabilitation. Several injection therapies have been reported to accelerate recovery time and decrease the risk of injury recurrence. These include, Traumeel homeopathic drug (Tr14), local anesthetics, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Tr14 is a homeopathic solution that possesses anti-edematous, anti-exudative, and anti-inflammatory properties. This consists of a combination of minerals and botanical substances. It reduces inflammation by inhibiting the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-1β, TNF-α, and IL-8, by immunocytes. This application has been shown to demonstrate beneficial effects on various musculoskeletal disorders, in efforts of reducing inflammation, and facilitating repair and healing, used in conjunction in platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment. Although numerous biochemical and cellular pathways seem to be modulated by its ingredients, the precise mechanism of action of Traumeel has never been explored in detail.

As athletes are reported to be successfully treated in practice, more scientific evidence is looking at coming through to support the general use of the above-mentioned agents in the treatment of muscle injuries in athletes. In has been found in previous lab studies that neither PRP nor Traumeel is toxic to muscles and that both can modulate the biological function of muscle cells.

In a previous study in muscle healing and regeneration the investigators aimed to explore the regulatory impact of these treatments on the healing process of skeletal muscle injury. For more than three decades, health professionals and scientists have attempted to accelerate muscle healing Intramuscular application Traumeel is now growing very common in the treatment of various different conditions within sports medicine. Truameel has been demonstrated to have bio-regulatory effects in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Based on their findings, they found a positive response in reduced inflammation, healing and regeneration. Further studies are needed to help gain further evidence on the benefits of Traumeel in muscle regeneration. Meanwhile, further advances will be made in clinical practice to aid repair and recovery, without harmful side effects.
