An AmnioFix Injection is a type of human amniotic membrane in powder form that can be mixed with an anesthetic for direct injection into an injured area of the foot or ankle. For the past 100 years, the medical world has used the amniotic membrane in treatments for all portions of the body. Doctors most often use injection treatments in response to soft tissue trauma or micro-tears that become inflamed. In these cases, scar tissue will immediately begin to form, which can impede your wound’s recovery. Typical treatments, such as oral or topical anti-inflammatories, rest, and custom-made braces, are not always enough.
Is It Right for Me?
You should consider an AmnioFix Injection as a viable treatment option if:
- You were diagnosed with a sports injury or a soft tissue injury
- Traditional treatments, including anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, or braces, have not helped
- You reached our treatment limits of steroid injections
Alternatively, if you’re simply interested in speeding up your healing process and significantly reducing your recovery period, an injection can be a useful tool.
The treatment process will vary depending on the ailment you are currently suffering from. For example, an AmnioFix Injection can be used to treat plantar fasciitis. In this case, the only side effect of the injection is a bit of redness and tenderness around the injection site, which can be minimized using ice and elevation. This discomfort typically lasts for only 2 to 3 days.
During a consultation visit, your doctor will determine whether or not an injection is a useful treatment option.
