At JAWS podiatry, we recommend and implement the most effective and advanced treatments to resolve ankle and heel problems. Sometimes, surgery is the best or only option. But we know that surgery is invasive, uncomfortable, and can require lengthy recovery time. That’s why we always explore non-surgical alternatives when those alternatives could achieve the same result. Many of these alternative treatments focus on using and enhancing the body’s natural regenerative functions to relieve pain and repair damage.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is an option for patients with new injuries or patients who previously tried other orthopedic treatments with no relief. Each regenerative procedure is done in just a day, minimizing healing time considerably.
Regenerative medicine can take many forms, including the use of amniotic stem cells.
We use this safe and proven biocompatible approach to treat a wide range foot and ankle ailments, including:
- ankle instability
- plantar fasciitis or heel pain
- strains caused by peroneal tendon tears
- sprains due to ligament tears
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the all-purpose handymen of our bodies, containing powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help restore healthy functioning and repair damaged tissue throughout the body. Unlike cortisone and other anti-inflammatory drugs which only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore damaged tissue while providing pain relief at the same time.
How Does It Work?
Here’s how amniotic stem cell therapy works: We receive amniotic tissue from elective donations. All amniotic stem cell donors must go through an extensive screening process approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) before they can be used for therapeutic purposes.
These approved and screened stem cells are then transformed into injections. The stem cells are injected into the injured tissue, stimulating the work that the body is already doing.
Amniotic stem cell therapy offers patients the opportunity to reduce pain and speed up the recovery process after an injury. You should discuss with your physician whether this treatment is right for you.
