Virtually everyone has experienced inflammation, and those with serious joint injury or recovering from orthopaedic surgery understand that mismanaged inflammation is capable of complicating and prolonging the recovery processes. Controlling inflammation is the established practice among many medical professionals for this reason.
However, at Reparel, we don’t think of inflammation as the ‘bad guy’.
Inflammation is your body’s natural reaction to tissue injury or trauma; it’s a fundamental and necessary component of healing and recovery. The same way your body’s immune system fights infectious germs and bacteria, it also initiates the inflammatory response, flooding the trauma site with specialized cells to initiate blood clotting and limit the potential damage.
