    Joint Health


    I am new and not 100% sure where this message should go, but I believe it falls into general health.

    As a college baseball player (Pitcher and Outfield), I recently partially tore a tendon in my hand, and I pride myself with taking care of my body better than most other people on the team. How can I avoid issues with ligaments and tendons though? Better yet, since tendons don't usually heal to 100% ever again, is there anything supplement wise, etc. that will allow me to heal faster, better, and keep my ligaments and tendons more healthy?

    My diet is aimed towards anti-inflammatory foods, muscle building, and sports nutrition. So any ideas what I can do?
