When you’re suffering from pain in your lower extremities, it can be hard to go about your daily activities. When conservative treatment options aren’t providing you relief, podiatrists often turned to steroids and surgery to treat the pain in the past. While these options work, they are more invasive and have side effects. Fortunately, Certified Foot & Ankle Specialists provide patients with another option for pain relief in your feet, ankles and lower legs: amniotic fluid injections.
Dr. Julio Ortiz, a podiatrist at Certified Foot & Ankle Specialists, details how this innovative treatment works and its remarkable health properties. The goal of other treatment options is to mask the pain. This is done by targeting and destroying the damaged tissue in your lower extremities. Amniotic fluid injections were developed to actually help heal the affected area with regeneration. These injections have been proven as an effective treatment option for patients dealing with arthritis.
Results with our patients have been nothing short of incredible! After injecting the solution, the stem cells work together to repair any diseases tissue. After the amniotic fluid is injected, healthy cell production will continue in the site to promote healing. Not only will this option help people avoid unnecessary surgeries, but it can be performed in-office by our board-certified podiatrists with little to no down time.
For patients looking for a treatment option than can reduce inflammation while restricting and healing the tendons in their lower extremities, amniotic fluid injections may be a promising option for them, especially if the condition has not previously responded to conservative options. If you would like to find out more about amniotic fluid injections, and determine if you are a good candidate for this exciting new treatment option, do not hesitate to make an appointment with the board-certified podiatrists and foot surgeons at Certified Foot & Ankle Specialists
