How Testosterone Heals

Injuries happen.

As we age, it becomes more difficult to heal pain and injuries.

Injuries happen when we are enjoying our lives and activities, and we all want to stay healthy and pain-free.

Sports injuries are caused by accidents, insufficient warm-up, poor technique or overexertion. Almost any part of the body can be injured. The ankles and knees are especially prone to injury, but muscles, bones, tendons, joints and connective tissues can also be affected. Stay mindful of your current fitness level and place limits to prevent overexertion that may lead to injury.

Testosterone promotes recovery.

Testosterone is a hormone that promotes healing and restoration. It does this by helping the body create new tissue and repair old tissue. It also helps maintain the strength of tendons and ligaments, which are important for sports injuries such as ACL injuries or Achilles tendon ruptures. The hormone is necessary to maintain lean mass and heal wounds and has a critical role in the improvement of muscle mass. The healing effects of testosterone are beneficial as treatments for many illnesses, diseases and health conditions including pressure ulcers. 

Plus testosterone has a positive effect on mood, energy levels and mental well-being.

As you age, your testosterone levels decline naturally. This can make it more difficult to heal from an injury or sore muscles. Testosterone replacement therapy can help you recover faster from injury or return to activity after surgery.

ViveWell’s staff of private medical professionals harness the power of testosterone for accelerated healing to ensure complete recovery in rehabilitation. Moderate testosterone use in conjunction with education and expert medical advice can be an effective solution for injured clients seeking quality treatment for their injuries.

Mild injuries normally heal quickly. More serious injuries requiring advanced healing often benefit from testosterone therapy. Treatment can improve exercise capacity, muscle strength and glucose metabolism, especially in conjunction with appropriate physical therapy and exercise. In fact, capacity, cardiovascular parameters and quality of life in patients taking testosterone supplements often improve quickly.
