how to speed up recovery from injury

How to speed up recovery?

Regeneration of the body is a topic that is not only important for athletes, but in fact for everyone.

Lots of work, stress, partying, lack of sleep, unbalanced diet - there are many factors that can affect our health.

Regeneration, i.e. the process aimed at returning to homeostasis, equilibrium, consists of processes of self-repair of cells, tissues, organs, healing of wounds, injuries, as well as psychological renewal.

There are many effective ways to regenerate. The most effective are considered to be: getting enough sleep, good diet, adequate hydration, active rest in nature, tranquillity, massages and relaxation treatments, including sauna. Thus, it can be said that a healthy lifestyle, including good eating habits and sleep hygiene, as well as recreation and leisure activities, influences every sphere of our lives and allows our body and mind to function well and regenerate efficiently.

One way to regenerate faster is through massages. They have been used since ancient times to improve the functioning of the whole body. There are many types of massage, but the good news is that each one can benefit us. Whether we choose a relaxing massage, a therapeutic massage, a sports massage or reflexology, we will get a positive effect in the body. The stimulation of micro-circulation alone results in our tissues being better supplied with oxygen and nutrients, but also in better metabolism and elimination of metabolic products, which influences the speed at which renewal processes are triggered. One could write for hours about the effects of massage on the human body.

However, in the context of regeneration, it is also worth mentioning that massage reduces the secretion of stress hormones (including cortisol, adrenaline), increases the secretion of serotonin, reduces pain and tension and facilitates relaxation. So we can say that massage is a way of comprehensive, holistic regeneration involving both body and mind.

To speed up recovery, a trip to the sauna is also worthwhile. Here, too, there are many options to choose from and each can contribute to a faster, more efficient recovery. When making your choice, it is worth taking into account your state of health, your capabilities and your preferences. The sauna, like massage, has a positive effect on our body and mind. By overheating the body with high temperatures and high or low humidity and the subsequent cooling down of the body with cold showers, we affect all systems and organs as well as the skin. The heat relaxes the body, improves our mood and releases good emotions.


Nature also provides us with many tasty recovery aids. One of the most effective is beetroot juice. Why is it worth including it in your diet? Beetroots are a source of B vitamins, vitamins C and A, as well as many important elements - including iron, potassium and magnesium. They are also sometimes called a natural antidepressant because they contain tryptophan, which is involved in the production of serotonin. Scientists have proven that runners who drink beetroot juice tire more slowly, have less muscle soreness, but also recover more quickly. However, drinking beetroot juice does not only have a good effect on athletes. Beetroot also has a positive effect on the appearance of hair, skin and nails, promotes healing processes, and strengthens the cardiovascular and immune systems.
