    Will it work if i inject directly into injury?

    Im about to start growth, i usually inject it into the fat on my stomach but i recently got a grade 2 hamstring strain and was told from a few peeps that it will help heal my injury if i inject directly into hamstring, is this true???i want to be for sure if i do so! And another thing, by injecting it in my stomach does it still help healing of injury?

    Im 33, 5"8 and 190

    Some believe it helps, some not so much....I injected straight into my knee when it hurt and I do think it felt better.....

    No.

    Your liver has to convert the HGH to growth factors before new tissue can be created. It doesn't get converted locally.

    You might find this interesting OP.

    "Based on many reports in the literature
    describing the positive benefits of systemically injected
    HGH in helping speed the healing of serious burns, skin
    grafts, and fractures, we hypothesized that a localized
    injection of HGH would also be beneficial. I could find
    only one study in the literature using localized injection of
    HGH. The study involved brachial artery injections using
    a tourniquet and compared muscle mass in the treated
    arm with the untreated arm used as the control. Muscle
    mass increased significantly in the treated arm and the
    serum IGF-1 levels did not rise. HGH is a strong stimulant
    of protein synthesis, with the effect being significantly
    enhanced with the addition of aqueous testosterone ."

    "After a 6 month process, I was
    awarded an IRB approval from the Roper/St. Francis
    Healthcare System IRB committee in Charleston, SC for
    a two year study with 100 subjects. The study started in
    June 2009, and I am currently treating or have treated
    40 patients. The preliminary results have been quite
    gratifying. I’ve found anecdotally that the areas treated
    are healing faster, stabilizing more quickly, and patients
    are reporting less pain than was observed with the
    Prolotherapy procedures that I perform. I am averaging 3
    sets of injections per body area, with minimal discomfort
    during and after the procedure. A number of patients
    report improvements very early on during treatment.
    Each subject will be re-evaluated 12 months following the
    completion of the injections, and I have not yet reached
    that timeline."

    I'm always nervous about injecting directly into injured areas. If the needle penetrate through the tendon or ligament it puts a little hole in it. In the case of a tendon, it doesn't heal. Enough holes and you'll weaken the tendon. I've had serious shoulder injuries where I used HGH for recovery. I don't think the benefit of direction injection out weighs the potential risks. My .02
