Maintaining an active lifestyle after suffering from debilitating injury or disease is never easy. Inflammatory or degenerative conditions – including osteoarthritis and plantar fasciitis, among others –can severely restrict your activity, leaving you with extreme pain and disability. When conservative treatments fail, surgery may seem to be your only remaining option.
Over the past decade, regenerative medicine has revolutionized the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions.
This game-changing area of medicine seeks to encourage your own body to repair itself by regenerating defective tissues. Only one innovative regenerative therapy leverages the innate restorative properties of umbilical cord.This natural tissue-based therapy has been shown to be benficial to the body’s own healing process.
Amniotic tissue, which includes the umbilical cord and amniotic membrane surrounding the unborn baby, has been designed by nature to allow the fetus to develop in a healthy, controlled manner, protected from outside interference or trauma. Unlike any other tissue in your body, it also has regenerative properties to promote healing by managing scarring and inflammation. These restorative abilities come from several innate biological factors that promote tissue healing.
After more than 30 years of research and over 300,000 procedures, Amniox has demonstrated the safe and effective use of umbilical cord and amniotic membrane for treating a variety of conditions throughout the body.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient's own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.
