Muscular contusions are now being treated successfully at The Center for Regenerative Medicine in Miami, according to Dr. Farshchian.
Sports injuries need an adequate blood supply and cellular migration. Platelet-derived growth factors are critically involved in this process. These cells allow the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the injected area in order to accelerate the healing process. These cells perform many functions, including release of growth factors (GF) into the diseased or arthritic and injured sites.
Contusions in sports injuries are very common, typically caused by a forceful blow in to the muscle cells, muscle fibers and connective tissue gets damaged, there is some bleeding inside, skin does not break, but usually gets discolored (black and blue) as healing starts. Most contusions are minor and heal quickly without any help by themselves. Healing can be slowed by repeated traumas and not resting the area. Healing can be accelerated by R.I.C.E.
Medication wise dietary supplements known for healing properties such as Zinc and Amino acids may play a role. Low level Lasers may help as well. Sometimes rehabilitating a severe contusion too quickly could cause myositis ossificans in this entity in the bruised area bone may grow instead of muscle cells.
