Chronic foot pain can cause major issues in day to day life, and finding the proper pain management can be very difficult. If exercises, braces, and other methods have been exhausted, your doctor may have recommended AmnioFix injections.
Treatment For Chronic Pain
AmnioFix is a minimally manipulated dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane allograft, or in other words, an injectable skin substitution product. It is often recommended to people who suffer from foot pain from conditions such as plantar fasciitis, diabetes, achilles tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, or previous injuries. AmnioFix is an alternative to pain management options such as cortisone, NSAID pain relievers or opiates. However, AmnioFix is a regenerative medicine that treats the underlying condition, as opposed to the symptoms. It is an excellent alternative for patients who are not interested in steroid injections or surgery.
