Foot an ankle injuries are common among athletes and many of these injuries can be treated non-surgically with stem cell therapy, depending on the nature of the injury. Foot and ankle arthritis is also common as we age, although many of us experience arthritis earlier than expected due to a foot or ankle injury in our younger days.
FASI offers the most advanced stem cell treatments for foot and ankle injuries and for degenerative conditions.
Commonly Treated Foot and Ankle Injuries and Degenerative Conditions:
- Ankle instability
- Tendon tear or split
- Ligament tear or sprain
- Joint arthritis or instability
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis/ runner’s injury
Patient Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
These non-surgical injection procedures happen in a single day, and may offer a viable alternative for those suffering from foot and ankle pain, or who may be facing surgery. Our patients are able to return to work and normal activity more quickly following this non-surgical procedure and avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods that are required following a foot or ankle surgery to help restore strength, mobility, and range of motion.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine?
It is an advanced technique for helping your body produce the cells it needs to regenerate, repair, and restore damaged or missing tissue. It can involve the use of the donor’s amniotic or embryo stem cells, which have the ability to develop into any type of cell needed (blood, bone, muscle, organ, tendon, ligaments, connective tissues, etc.).
