If you suffer from painful connective tissue problems with your feet, the podiatrists at Newtown Foot and Ankle can help treat you with amniotic stem cell therapy. Amniotic stem cell injections can be an effective treatment for patients with sprained ankles, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions that include tissue damage and ankle sprains.
The Achilles tendon is located at the back of the foot and links the calf muscles to the heel bone. Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. An Achilles tear occurs when the tendon has either micro or larger breaks that causes swelling and discomfort.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Amniotic stem cell injections provide many benefits to patients. Amniotic stem cells:
- Contain hyaluronic acid (which promotes new growth and lubricates cartilage)
- Use naturally-occurring anti-inflammatory agents
- Stimulate tissue growth through growth factors
- Carry no threat of patient rejection
- No cartilage loss (may even regenerate cartilage)
- Address root causes of pain
- Provide safe treatment to patients
Amniotic fluid is highly concentrated which makes injections more effective than other treatments.
Treatment with Stem Cell Therapy
Before treatment, one of our experienced podiatrists will review your treatment options with you and take your health into account. This assessment is done to ensure that treatment aligns with your specific health needs. It is important that we have an accurate diagnosis before beginning treatment. We will use advanced imaging and ultrasounds to locate the areas of damage in the foot and ankle. Then we will develop a treatment plan to that will target the areas that need stem cell therapy.
During treatment, stem cells from your amniotic tissues are injected into your body. This restores degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The stem cells will divide and help build up new tissue. The entire process should take about 2 hours. We will use local anesthetic for your comfort when and if you need it. Stem cell therapy is a safe and well-researched procedure. In addition, it is rare for patient rejection to occur with this type of stem cell injection treatment.
Who Qualifies for Stem Cell Therapy?
If you suffer from pain in your foot and ankle and no other treatment has helped, then stem cell therapy may work for you. Most patients will try medications or physical therapy first. These traditional treatments are your typical first step that most doctors will take. However, if they do not work for you, we may suggest stem cell therapy. It is still a low risk and non-invasive treatment option.
