The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved amniotic injection therapy as a treatment option for podiatric problems that affect the soft tissues of the feet and ankles. This advanced treatment option is available to those in Nassau County and Queens, New York, from the experts at Ideal Foot & Ankle Group. We work with you to determine if amniotic injection therapy is right for you and to deliver the best options for your treatment needs. Here are some facts you should know about amniotic injections in our area.
What Is Amniotic Injection Therapy?
A treatment option that is related to stem cell therapies, amniotic injection therapy is derived from cells harvested from amniotic fluid. Amniotic injections are rich in hyaluronic acid and cytokines, which are key to the lubrication of cartilage and the prevention of inflammation in affected areas. This treatment option has been shown to reduce discomfort and inflammation while improving the body’s ability to regenerate damaged tissues. This can significantly speed the healing process and can promote the regrowth of healthier tissue. Amniotic injections also reduce pain and help to promote increased mobility for patients of Ideal Foot & Ankle Group.
What Conditions Can Amniotic Injection Therapy Be Used to Treat?
Amniotic injections have produced good results in patients with the following conditions:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis and other tendon conditions
- Tears in muscles, tendons or ligaments
- Osteoarthritis of the joints in the foot or ankle
- Peripheral neuropathy
Because the chemical compounds and cellular components of amniotic fluid injections are designed to promote tissue growth and restoration of damaged tissue, they are ideally suited for treating injuries and degenerative conditions of the feet and ankles. Amniotic injection therapy is a safe and effective way to speed the healing process and to reduce pain and discomfort that could otherwise affect your mobility. Because amniotic injections contain no DNA, they pose little or no risk of rejection or adverse reactions by patients. At Ideal Foot & Ankle Group, we can provide amniotic injection therapy for our patients in Nassau County and Queens to help you to achieve greater mobility and increased comfort during your healing or treatment process.
