Personalised Sports Medicine
Sport is the number one recreational accident in people under the age of 30.
The foundation of our health is full and pain-free movement. Exercise is the best medicine, but whether private or professional - injury can happen even with great preparation, Goldic is emerging as critical option way to heal and fully recover without surgery.
Physical activity has far more positive health effects than risks. An important aspect of sport is to challenge and promote your body.
Full Recover from Sports Injury
With the massive range of sports and recreational activities on offer these days, sports injuries can take many forms. Many practitioners move from ice/physio to surgery - but regenerative medicines are rapidly growing for treating a variety of musculo-skeletal disorders or injuries and represent an increasingly adopted, effective, side-effect free way to restore full original function repairing joints, ligaments, muscles, cartilage leading to full recover.
In all wound healing processes, cells of the immune system with its network of cytokines are involved in different ways. Thus, the messengers of the immune sys-tem are able to stimulate tissue regeneration by con-trolling cell growth and stimulating differentiation, cell metabolism and protein synthesis.
The aim of treating muscle injuries with GOLDIC® medical products is the regeneration of the damaged tissue with a faster wound healing and without scar formation.
GOLDIC® is a Class IIb medical device offering a novel technology that allows side-effect-free treatments in the endogenous system.
Individualized medicine is considered the megatrend that will change the current health care sector completely, and at a rapid pace. The idea here is: the treatment of the patient should be carried out taking into account his individual circumstances. Of central importance in sports medicine will be an integrative approach in the interests of the patients, in which the treating physician, physiotherapist and / or trainer work together in an interdisci-plinary and closely networked manner, thus meaningfully sharing valuable innovations.GOLDIC® devices enable a special form of personalised medicine. They support the physician in the treatment of inflammatory and degenerative diseases and support endogenous REGENERATION.
In each healing phase, different cell types play decisive roles of varying importance. All processes involved are closely interlinked. The healing phases are not simple linear processes, rather they interlock. They can not be separated chronologically or spatially, and GOLDIC® medical devices support these processes. GOLDIC® supports the proliferation of tissue cells to promote the regeneration of the tissue matrix.
GOLDIC® is increasingly used around the world for injury rehabilitation.
Goldic offers recovery from chronic and repetitive stress injuries providing more complete recovery and avoiding surgery. Possible applications for GOLDIC® include:
Muscle injuries account for about 30% of all sports injuries. Their importance is often underestimated, so it is not uncommon for a minor, untreated muscle injury to result in a subsequent major injury. The consequences are long training and competition breaks, sometimes even permanent damage.
Poor preparation, lack of warm-up, lack of stretching, sudden muscle exertion, but also an unresolved injury or dysfunction (such as muscle strain) can result in the rupture of one or more muscle fibres.
The symptoms are easily recognizable. A stab-like pain in the musculature, without a warning sign; typically for sports requiring explosive movements (sprint or jump disciplines, ball sports, etc.) especially in the event of sudden stopping and braking, rapid acceleration or a combination of both.
A torn muscle fibre always shows an accompanying hemorrhage into the muscles (hematoma); depending on the severity, a more or less large depression in the muscle progression can be felt.
Such an injury requires immediate sport termination and immediate therapeutic action. This treatment usu-ally takes place according to the so-called RICE rule:
R = Rest
I = Ice
C = Compression
E = Elevation
How long an injury takes to heal can best be judged by an experienced sports doctor. It is important not to strain the injured muscle too early and too much.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) helps hold the knee joint together and provides stability. A torn ACL is a sports injury that may occur when landing the wrong way, changing direction or stopping quickly, or from a direct blow to the knee.
People who suffer a torn ACL may hear a pop and then feel their knee no longer functions. Pain, swelling, and loss of range of motion are symptoms of a torn ACL. It may be difficult to walk. A torn ACL needs to be reconstructed surgically, usually using a graft from another ligament in the patient's own body.
Significant rehabilitation is necessary to restore the strength and function of the knee joint after surgery. Depending on the age, health status, and desired activity level of the patient, some may not elect to have surgery, before you do surgery - speak to a specialist about the regenerative effect of GOLDIC®.
In that case, braces and physical therapy will not cure the condition, but may provide some relief.
Runner's knee – also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome – is a painful condition that occurs when tendons, joint lining (synovia), and/or other soft tissues of the knee become irritated. Overuse can cause runner's knee. So can a misaligned kneecap. In addition to pain, runner's knee may lead to popping and cracking. Switching to activities that do not stress knee joints may minimize problems. RICE – rest, ice, compression, and elevation – may help.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, and orthotics may provide relief. Rarely, surgery may be an option for severe cases that have not responded to other treatments.
GOLDIC® medical products create enriched anti-inflammatory and regenerative proteins as well as activation and differentiation of the body's own stem cells. The healing process is both augmented and accelerated getting you back to full speed quickly.
The plantar fascia is a ligament that connects the heel to the front of the foot, supporting the arch. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of this ligament. It causes heel pain often felt the first thing in the morning after getting out of bed or after being active. Stress and strain on the feet increases the risk of plantar fasciitis. Obesity, tight calf muscles, repetitive use, high arches, and new athletic activities are all risk factors for this condition. Plantar fasciitis is treated with rest, ice, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and special stretching exercises. Cushioning insoles may provide relief. Wearing splints at night may help decrease pain. More severe cases of plantar fasciitis may be treated with cortisone injections, physical therapy, and surgery.
The Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon of the human body and was already in Greek mythology as the weak point of otherwise invincible Achilles (Achilles heel).
The function of the Achilles tendon is the flexion of the ankle, which means that the forefoot is pulled down forcefully. This movement is essential for kicking the foot while walking and running. The Achilles tendon is exposed to enormous loads. Above all, the dynamic peak loads in sports that endures the tendon, are admirable.
Achilles tendon complaints can be persistent, and an inflamed or injured Achilles tendon must be treated for its cause in the long term to relieve or eliminate the symptoms. The reasons for acute pain and irritation of the Achilles tendon lie in the anatomy: The Achilles tendon is surrounded by a thin layer of tissue and slides on movement in a kind of tube (tendon sheath) of several membranes. To protect against friction are between the tissue layers gelatinous compounds on which the resilience of the tendon depends. The more lubricious the membranes, the lower the risk of injury.
Acute inflammation of the Achilles tendon and surrounding mucosa (achillodynia) is a typical running injury. It often occurs at too high training intensities of the athletes, which increase the training scope and / or the intensity too fast. Ambitious athletes can tell you a thing or two about that. The typical symptoms are: pain, swelling and overheating of the tendon. The athlete typically feels a discomforting pinching in the tendon area and a strong pressure sensitivity of the affected area. The tendon and the surrounding tissue may swell, often the thickening is also palpable and the affected area is overheated.
In chronic Achilles tendonitis there is a palpable knot formation by scarred tissue in the tendon. This chronic inflammation causes constant pain and over time leads to a weakening of the Achilles tendon (calcification), which can subsequently cause a tear of the Achilles tendon.
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) connects the upper leg bone (femur) to the larger bone of the lower leg (tibia). It is located on the inner side of the knee. The MCL is typically injured when the knee joint is pushed sideways when making a wrong move or by receiving a direct blow to the knee. A torn MCL results in pain, swelling, and instability of the joint.
The condition is often treated with ice, bracing, and physical therapy. If other structures in the knee are injured or if the torn MCL is severe, surgery may be recommended. Speak to a specialist about GOLDIC® first!
Everyone knows this term „tennis elbow“. This tendonitis or epicondylitis of the forearm eventually occurs in non-tennis players. In racket sports, the grip size of the sports equipment is often considered to be the decisive cause. But even by a wrong arm position in the profession (writing, gardening, etc.) or even by a wrong sleeping position, this inflammatory disease can be triggered.
Typical symptoms include pain and tenderness on the lateral side of the elbow, pain or weakness in grasping or twisting the wrist, and pain associated with lifting objects.
Tennis elbow is a common injury that will usually heal with minor treatment, but you have to give it time and rest. The same symptoms occur in the “golfer’s elbow”, but here is the overload of the forearm flexor muscle on the inside of the elbow joint responsible.
For both acute and chronic conditions (persistence of symptoms over an extended period of time),
GOLDIC® can provide a successful treatment alternative. The most common cause of chronic sports injuries are overuse or overwork and not cured, acute injuries. There are still chances of healing.
Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common cause of shoulder pain. It occurs when there is impingement of tendons or bursa in the shoulder from bones of the shoulder. Overhead activity of the shoulder, especially repeated activity, is a risk factor for shoulder impingement syndrome. Examples include: painting, lifting, swimming, tennis, and other overhead sports. Other risk factors include bone and joint abnormalities.
With impingement syndrome, pain is persistent and affects everyday activities. Motions such as reaching up behind the back or reaching up overhead to put on a coat or blouse, for example, may cause pain.
Over time, impingement syndrome can lead to inflammation of the rotator cufftendons (tendinitis) and bursa (bursitis). If not treated appropriately, the rotator cuff tendons can start to thin and tear.
