Wouldn’t it be cool if you could help your foot and ankle injuries just by getting an injection? This sounds kind of futuristic right? Maybe something you’d see on the silver screen? Well, you really can help your foot pain by injecting healthy live-birth stem cells into the area causing you discomfort. Before you skeptically shrug it off or decide it seems too sci-fi for you, learn about how it works and the type of foot and ankle issues stem cells can help.
How stem cell treatment works
Live birth stems cells, cells taken from the amniotic sacks of healthy live births, are delivered directly by injection into the areas feeling pain. It’s a minimally invasive technique, meaning it’s done by making an incision the size of a pinprick.
Foot problems stem cells can help treat
Live birth stem cells can change into anything. In the field of podiatry they are used for the purpose of changing into new, healthy bones and cartilage to repair what’s been damaged.
Arthritis of the big toe joint
Ligaments in the ankle joint
Achilles tendon tears
Tears of the plantar fascia ligament
Stem cells begin to work immediately to build new cartilage, bone, tendon, and skin. This means quicker healing and more range of motion, less post-operative pain, and less inflammation.
Hopefully we’ve given you some insight on how useful stem cell treatment can be and that it’s not just a futuristic endeavor.
