HGH And Back Pain
Read the Following article on "HGH And Back Pain".
It is said that in the U.S., acute low back pain is the fifth most common reason for physician visits. About nine out of ten adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and five out of ten working adults have back pain every year. Thus it is no wonder that there have been many supplements and methods in the market today claiming to cure back pain.
The spine is a complex interconnecting network of nerves, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, and all are capable of producing pain. Large nerves that originate in the spine and go to the legs and arms can make pain radiate to the extremities. This makes back pain a very complex problem to treat. But do you know that human growth hormone, a hormone being secreted by the pituitary gland when we were young, holds the answer to back pain problems?
But how does HGH relieve back pain?
HGH and Back Pain? Is There Relief?
There are many studies revealing human growth hormone as a promising way to treat connective tissue/joint problems, and studies are starting to support that conclusion. There have been impressive developments recently in the use of growth factors for accelerated healing of sports related injuries, overuse syndromes, improved healing after some plastic surgery procedures, as well as studies finding success in the area of orthopedics.
This is because many people who suffer from chronic connective tissue problems and chronic back problems are often found to have low IGF-1, and reversing that state of low IGF-1 as a treatment for these pathologies is a viable treatment.
Human growth hormone works to relieve back pain by two mechanisms. Because polypeptide hormones are not fat-soluble, they cannot penetrate sarcolemma. Thus, HGH exerts some of its effects by binding to receptors on target cells, where it activates a second messenger.Through this mechanism GH directly stimulates division and multiplication of chondrocytes of cartilage, and that helps a lot in relieving back pain.
HGH also stimulates production of insulin-like growth factor 1 which has stimulatory effects on osteoblast and chondrocyte activity to promote bone growth.
