What is the purpose of fatty acid analysis?
Studies have shown that Germans have significant deficiencies in the area of fatty acids. Unsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in particular fulfill important tasks in the human body.
Unsaturated fatty acids lead to faster recovery and prevention of muscle injuries. The Performance of the Heart and Lungs is also improved. Omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect on patients with rheumatism and osteoarthritis.
That is why we offer fatty acid analysis. From this analysis, we obtain the HS Omega-3 Index, which we use as a basis for treatment with an individual supplement of healthy fatty acids. We then check your fatty acid index every 6 months.
How is the analysis carried out?
3 ml of blood will be taken from you for analysis. The concentration on the erythrocyte membrane is then measured in a laboratory. This can be thought of as “fatty acid memory.” The value is therefore not falsified by the food intake of the last few days. The result is a detailed analysis of the fatty acid concentration in your body.
11. How is the recovery process going?
This question is very individual and cannot be answered in general terms. It depends on the individual case and in particular on the type of surgical procedure. In any case, it will take several weeks before you can walk again without crutches after knee surgery, until you can fully exercise your knee again, usually up to six months, in some cases even 12 months.
In the case of a cartilage cell transplant, for example, the knee is usually able to regain normal strength only one year after the operation. The recovery process for cruciate ligament ruptures also takes a very long time; a full load may take place after six months at the earliest. This is more difficult to assess during meniscus surgery. The healing process can take from one week to six weeks. Whatever knee surgery you have, it is very important that physiotherapy starts immediately after the operation and that the recovery process is well supervised by professionals. Therefore, do not miss the follow-up tests. They contribute to the fact that
Whatever knee surgery you have, it is very important that physiotherapy starts immediately after the operation and that the recovery process is well supervised by professionals. Therefore, do not miss the follow-up tests. They help make the operation worthwhile for you and hopefully you can move (almost) pain-free again.
