What Is Amniotic Therapy and How Is It Useful

At the Advanced Heel Pain Centers of South Florida, we recommend and implement the most effective and innovative treatments to resolve the help pain and discomfort that severely hinder our patients’ quality of life.

We know that surgery is rarely the first choice for our patients if other viable and less-invasive options can resolve the issue.

Many of the minimally-invasive treatments we offer as an alternative to traditional surgery focus on using and enhancing the body’s natural regenerative processes to relieve heel pain and repair tendon and tissue damage.

One of the regenerative medicine techniques we employ involves the use of amniotic stem cells.

How Does Amniotic Therapy Help With Heel Pain?  

Stem cells are the jack-of-all-trades handymen of our bodies and are found in abundance in amniotic fluid.

They contain powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can help restore healthy functioning and repair damaged tissue throughout the body while providing pain relief at the same time.

Amniotic fluid the stem cells in contains have several properties that make it particularly effective at healing the damaged or degenerated tissues that are often the cause behind heel pain.

Additionally, amniotic membrane tissues contain groups of connected proteins called collagen matrices around which new, healthy tissues can grow.

What Is Involved in Amniotic Therapy for Heel Pain?

Here’s how amniotic stem cell therapy works — We first receive amniotic tissue from elective donors.

All amniotic stem cell donors must go through an extensive screening process approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) before we can use them in therapeutic treatments.

We then take these approved and screened stem cells and transform them into injections.

We inject the cells into the injured tissue, stimulating the work that the body is already doing. 

Amniotic stem cell therapy offers patients a tremendous, non-invasive opportunity to resolve heel pain or speed up recovery after an injury.

You should discuss with your podiatrist whether this treatment is right for you.
