Amniotic injections are injections derived from human amniotic tissue. This can be any number of combinations of either amniotic and chorionic membrane or amniotic fluid depending on the specific product used. Amniotic injections are not stem cell injections. They do not contain any living cells. What they do contain are hundreds of growth factors which are implicated in recruiting your body’s own healing cells to the site of injection.
This treatment is a viable option if conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatories, physical therapy and bracing have not provided symptomatic relief, or if you are searching for a non-steroidal option or have teached the liit of steroid injections.
Many ligament and tendon injuries can be treated with amniotic fluid injections. At Northwest Foot & Ankle Centers we can assess your foot and ankle pain to help you decide if amniotic injections would be a suitable treatment for you.
