IGF for injuries?
Hi - I am a competative strength athlete and have been trying to get over a nagging injury for several months. Would IGF help speed up the recovery and what dosage would be most appropriate for this.
I am assuming that an intra muscular injection at or near the injury site would be best.....

IGF would be fine too.
Depends on the injury? How long you plan to run whatever? GH can get pricey...
BUT does hold more benefits to someone liek you. highger dose will allow good recovery and fat loss while maintaining muscle. Drop a weight class maybe only lose a few lbs on a lift?
Anyhoot.... i know there is a log floating around about a shoulder injury and IGF use.

I don't know if IGF would be better or not, but it certainly should help, depending on what type of injury. Ligaments and tendons not so much, but muscle tears definatly.

I don't think growth would be a problem, at least not with one run,but 20-30mcg's is probably enough. I wouldn't do it bi-laterally though. Just pin the area that is injured. I would do it ED for injury recovery, but thats just me.

I had a nagging knee injury while running a dry PH, which killed collagen synthesis. While running the PH I jacked up IGF-1 doses to 40 mcg 2x a day. Next I did a set of heavy ass squats while keeping my knee safe. The next day I started at that dose, and in 7-8 days later it's healed about 90%.
This is after 2 months of it not healing at all.

igf,gh and mgf(peg or not). take them all, and add some cjc + insulin. all those peptides will help injuries.
its incorrect to say gh only for non muscle injuries. igf increases rate of fibroblast growth in tendon, ligaments and cartilage and increases rate of collgaen synthesis. mgf is expressed in tendons as well as muscle. cjc will raise endogenous gh+igf so helps too. slin will shuttle nutrients to injured parts.
