If you have been suffering from chronic foot and ankle pain, your mobility may be greatly limited due to the severe pain of walking or even moving short distances. Surgery and medication are not your only options.
Regenerative medicine treatments offer real relief for your pain with minimal risks and downtimes.
Safe And Effective, Regenerative Treatments For Foot And Ankle Pain
Regenerative treatments utilize the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Our blood and tissue are filled with amazing healing properties that help us bounce back quickly following an injury or illness. Unfortunately, as we age, so does the tissue, making it harder to come back as fast.
Regenerative therapy uses tissue derived from Wharton’s Jelly, a substance found in a newborn baby’s umbilical cord. This substance is obtained through only the most reputable tissue banks in the country following an extensive prescreening of mothers who donate the tissue at the time of their scheduled C-section birth. This tissue is young and full of restorative properties such as exosomes, growth factors, and cytokines which promote fast healing to the foot or ankle, reducing inflammation and pain almost immediately.
Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is another form of regenerative medicine used to treat patients with severe or chronic foot and ankle pain. This procedure uses a sample of your own blood. Often taken at your doctor’s appointment, the sample is spun through a centrifuge that separates the blood into a serum highly concentrated and rich in platelets. The serum is then re-injected into the foot or ankle. The platelets help boost the body’s response to heal the damaged tissue.
Common Causes Of Ankle And Foot Pain
Your feet and ankles are designed to carry you from point A to point B every day of your life. You may not even give it a second thought most of the time, but it is evident how much you rely on them when they are in pain.
Sometimes the pain you are experiencing may be something small like a minor bruise or irritation that will work itself out; however, if the pain persists, you will want to be sure you are getting the proper treatment which means you need to get a proper diagnosis for the problem.

- Sprains/strains to ligaments and tendons
