Amniotic Fluid Injections for Foot Pain

Southeastern Pennsylvania Podiatrists

Amniotic fluid injections are an innovative treatment for foot and ankle pains that can eliminate the need for steroids or surgery. In this treatment, amniotic stem cells are injected near damaged tissues and help them regenerate. Unlike other treatments which destroy damaged tissue or attempt to cover pain, this treatment can actually heal the area and has proven effective for patients with arthritis.

It should be noted that amniotic stem cells are different from embryonic stem cells—which are at the center of the stem cell debate. Amniotic stem cells are extracted from an amniotic sac in a simple process that does not harm an embryo. The use of amniotic stem cells has not raised ethical or moral questions the way that embryonic stem cells have.

How it Works

The wonder of stem cells is that they can replicate the properties of cells near them. This means that a group of stem cells injected into an arthritic ankle can repair the damage done by this disease by regenerating healthy tissue. The injection of healthy cells will also stimulate further healthy cell production in the area.

Highlights of amniotic fluid injections:

  • A natural anti-inflammatory agent that does not contain steroids
  • Can prevent the need for surgery
  • Stem cells stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms, there no risk of patient rejection
  • Can repair injured ligaments and tendons
  • An effective treatment for osteoarthritis
