(RESOLVED!) What Are The 3 Stages Of Healing And Tissue Repair?

Inflammation has a bad reputation, but acute (fresh) inflammation is actually essential for tissue repair 😁 Immediately following an injury, there will be inflammation and bleeding in the injured area that results in pain, redness, swelling and heat 🔥 This is a result of a vascular and cellular response that releases required chemicals for the healing process and allows for an increase in blood flow to the area 🤓 Inflammation can cause pain by increasing pressure in the affected area and irritating the local nerves with chemicals. It begins the process of breaking down and digesting damaged cells. This sets the stage to the next phase. In this phase, the “R.I.C.E.” protocol in advised – rest, ice, compression and elevation. Education is the main goal of physiotherapy. It aims to help the body get to the next stage in healing, and to decrease swelling and pain. Oakville Chiropodist Brittney will help Brittney understand the acute inflammation stage. Patients on what to expect in this stage. [1]
The inflammatory phase is the body’s natural response to injury. Following initial injury, blood vessels contract in the wound area and form a clot. When haemostasis occurs, blood vessels begin to dilate, allowing essential cells like antibodies, white cells, growth factors, enzymes, and nutrients to get to the wound area. It causes an increase in the amount of exudate, which can lead to maceration. At this point, the typical signs of inflammation are erythema and heat as well as oedema and pain. The predominant cells at work here are the phagocytic cells; ‘neutrophils and macrophages’; mounting a host response and autolysing any devitalised ‘necrotic / sloughy’ tissue.

Maureen Egan woundsource.comAccording to a spokesman, hemostasis means that the wound is closed with clotting. Hemostasis occurs when blood leaks from the body. First, blood vessels narrow to stop blood flow. Platelets adhere to each other in order for hemostasis to continue. Seal the break in the wall The blood vessels. The final stage of coagulation is when the platelet plug is reinforced with fibrin threads. These are similar to a molecular binding agents. Hemostasis is the final stage. Wound healing happens very quickly. Within seconds after the epithelial walls of blood vessels rupture, platelets attach to the surface of the sub-endothelium. Within 60 seconds the fibrin strands start to attach. The fibrin mesh is formed and blood becomes liquid. Plaquelets and blood cells are kept in the wound by the formation of a “thrombus” or clot. Although the thrombus is important for wound healing, it becomes problematic when it separates from the vessel wall. Circulatory systemIt could cause a stroke, heart attack, or pulmonary embolism.

The experts from emedicine.medscape.comThese processes are controlled by many growth factors and cytokines. Inflammation is strongly influenced by interleukins. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and other factors enhance blood vessel formation, and some have multiple roles such as fibroblast growth factor (FGF)–2, which affects not only the process of angiogenesis but also that of reepithelialization. The dense bodies of thrombocytes release vasoactive chemicals such as serotonin and histamine. PDGF is chemotactic for fibroblasts and, along with TGF-β, is a potent modulator of fibroblastic mitosis, leading to prolific collagen fibril construction in later phases. Once fibrinogen has been cleaved, the structure for the completion of the coagulation procedure is also formed. Fibrin forms the structure that supports the cells of inflammation. The process may last for several days and begin immediately following the injury. This was modified by Alishea Bellcher, December 23, 2020. [4]
