If you recently broke a bone, there is a trick or two you can learn from elite athletes. It is a mistake to think that what happens to the strong football player or a gracious, softball player differs from you when it comes to fractured bones, torn ligaments and stress. Their situation is probably similar to yours but is amplified many times by their "celebrity athlete" status. Just like you athletes suffer excruciating pain, immobility, loss of income and not doing things they love. If the fracture is minor, athletes stay at work, keep playing and swallow numbing pain killers. They certainly have anxiety because an injury can easily end their career in the near future.
You just like an elite athlete have already been to the doctor, know that you fractured a bone, and are expecting a long healing process. The same happened to many elite athletes. Jolene Henderson, Amy Van Dyken-Rouen, Daniela Vidal and Jason Hatcher are just the few names among hundreds of professional sportswomen and men who just like you found out about an injury. What makes most professional athletes different is that their reputation, fans, huge incomes and teams depend on a fast recovery. Enhanced fracture recovery is exactly what you can learn from professional athletes:
Tip # 1. Consume high amounts of broken bone Superfood.
The faster you will start consuming high-end mineral pitch resin, the stronger and quicker your bone will grow together. Additional benefits are, reduced inflammation, diminished pain levels and less daily anxiety. Another gain from the resin is not developing tolerance to pain-killers (in plain old English not becoming an addict to prescription pain meds). A daily dose of mineral pitch increases 2-3 fold and maintained for at least one month.
Mineral pitch resin traditional names are: Shilajit or Moomiyo. The Resin used for at least 2000 years, is well researched by the modern day science. The Soviet orthopedic surgeons and Olympic athletes pioneered its application to prevent and address bone fractures.
WARNING. Unfortunately, most Shilajit-Moomiyo (English term for Mineral Pitch) on the market is fake. If found in powdered or encapsulated form, it is guaranteed be an imitation product. If obtained in the resin form, you are likely to get an imitation Shilajit-Moomiyo product.
Tip #2. Rest, followed by physical therapy and yoga.
Right after your injury, ample rest and good food are essential to rebuild your body. Regrowing bone after a severe fracture takes lot of energy from your body to generate. Rest and abstinence from straining activities is important because your body redistributes energy towards healing.
You will not be "immobilized" forever. Once it is reasonably safe to use the bone you fractured, once a qualified physician and an x-ray establish this, you can proceed to moderate physical therapy (PT). PT will prepare you for more strenuous activity, which will ideally fully restore your mobility.
A regular yoga practice will greatly contribute to your bones being healthy and strong. It is a known fact that a moderate stress on bones combined with a healthy diet contribute to stronger bones. A yoga routine will not only strengthen the bone, but will make your body more coordinated, flexible and counter events which may lead to a fracture.
Tip # 3. Prevent a bone injury before it happens.
The smartest way to healing a broken bone is not to break that bone. Easier said than done. However, if you will make it a habit of combining preventative amounts of broken bones superfood, rest, healthy diets and yoga you are less likely to injure.
