AmnioFlow Injection

Amniotic Fluid injection is a cutting edge non-surgical treatment for joint pain.

Amniotic Fluid injection is a cutting edge non-surgical treatment for joint pain. The injection of amniotic stem cells into a patient’s painful or damaged joints can eliminate the need for steroid injection and supplement or replace Platelet Rich Plasma injection to help encourage healing and pain relief. Amniotic fluid injection provides injectable, tissue allograft fluid derived from human placental amnion which functions as a biologic structural matrix to facilitate and enhance tissue healing and repair, essentially using the building blocks of the human body to heal damaged tissue.

What Conditions Can Amnio Flow Help With?

  • Plantar Fasciitis, involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot from your heel bone to your toes, similar to the Achilles tendon connecting the calf to the heel. Plantar Fasciitis can develop as a repetitive use injury or as a traumatic injury. Typical patients experience stabbing pain occurring in the heel or ball of the foot.
  • Bursitis, is a painful knee, elbow and hip condition that develops when the fluid filled sacs or bursae become inflamed. Bursitis is extremely common and is caused by repeated pressure on an area or repeated use of a joint.
  • Torn Rotator Cuff. Rotator cuff injuries are extremely common and only increase with age. A tear can occur as a result of a single traumatic injury or due to a repetitive motion.
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture. Your Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous tendon that connects your calf muscles to your ankle, it can tear completely or partially due to repeated use or traumatic injury and usually will tear about 2.5 inches above the heel, a section that can be prone to tears due to poor blood flow with Amnio Flow can help to address.
  • Tendonitis, or Tendinosis (Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow ,etc.). A painful condition which occurs when tendons in the elbow are overloaded through repetitive motion of the wrist and/or arms.

What Can You Expect If You Receive Amnio Flow Injection?

A normal session for an injection is outpatient and very short. After the injection is completed, patients have restored mobility within a day or two with little to no restrictions. You may feel some soreness or discomfort in the injection area as well as some redness for 2-3 days. Application of ice several times daily combined with elevation can reduce the discomfort.
