Abstract

THIS ARTICLE IS A COMMENTARY TO OUTLINE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF USING 2 SPECIFIC DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS DURING REHABILITATION FROM MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURY. JUSTIFICATION AND EXPLANATION ARE PROVIDED FOR THE USE OF PROTEIN AND CREATINE SUPPLEMENTS DURING AN EXERCISE PROGRAM TO INCREASE PROTEIN SYNTHESIS AND MUSCLE FUNCTION, AND TO IMPROVE ENERGY PRODUCTION TO PREVENT FATIGUE. EVIDENCE SUGGESTS POTENTIAL BENEFITS FOR THESE SUPPLEMENTS TO BE USED IN THIS POSTINJURY PERIOD, AT A TIME WHEN MANY INDIVIDUALS WILL ABSTAIN FROM SUPPLEMENTATION. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR PROFESSIONALS WORKING WITH INJURED OR RECOVERING INDIVIDUALS TO CONSIDER ADVISING THEM TO SUSTAIN THE SUPPLEMENTATION REGIMES.
