Foot & ankle injuries are common among athletes and busy professionals. One in three people will experience a foot or ankle injury in their lifetime. Many of these injuries can be treated conservatively without the need for surgery. Regenerative injectables can reduce pain and inflammation and increase healing times.
Our office has an array of treatment methods so we can customize a treatment plan specific to our patients’ lifestyles and goals. Regenerative medicine is a great alternative to traditional surgery. It can include PRP amnio injections, and stem cells.
Choosing the Best Treatment
PRP delivers a nutrient-rich dose of your body’s own plasma to an injured, sore, or painful area. This increases blood and oxygen to the area which allows for a perfect healing environment. This can reduce inflammation, increase healing times and reduce pain. This process separates your blood and filters out the platlet rich plasma. The plasma is then injected directly into the painful or injured spot.
Perinatal tissue and growth factor injections are used to treat many foot and ankle conditions- and non-foot or ankle conditions. This is an injection placed into an injured or painful area. The injection contains proteins, growth factors and anti-inflammatory agents. This is vital to an injury or painful area. The treatment can help to speed up healing or force the body into a healing state. In addition, it can trigger new blood vessels to form which will naturally increase healing times.
Stem cells are a treatment in which your own body’s tissue is used to promote healing and the regeneration of new cells within your body. This process is nearly painless and simple. We are able to collect the cells and deliver them right to the site of pain or injury right in the office. This treatment can ignite healing and reduce inflammation.
