I have some bad joints from working out and a motorcycle accident, namely my finger, shoulder and knee. They are doing ok, but I want better than ok. I have tried physical therapy and Active Release, which helped, but long term-wise I am going to end up with degenerate joints if I don’t do something about it, for sure.
Question is, how can GH help me? What form of it could help me? What are the risks? ect. I have had permanent tendonitis-like symptoms in my finger for the past year and a half, an all-around bad shoulder, and a previously operated on (arthroscopy) knee from scrapped cartilage on the back of my kneecap, which is holding up fairly well for jogging and biking (no lifting, too afraid). I am a healthy 23 year old male in decent shape.
I have researched Prolotherapy and found it to be unreliable and unproven.
I have researched Active Release and tried it, with good results on my shoulder but not on my finger. However, I feel that the release techniques will not help the larger problem I have in my shoulder, and certainly not my knee.
What other options do I have? (Surgery being out of the question).
I really need some help! Any good sites are welcome too, if there are any out there… I’ll be looking in the meantime. Thanks.
