Achilles Tendon Injuries

Nothing can be more frustrating than an Achilles tendon sprain. Sprains are graded on degree of tear in the tendon. Months of rest, a boot and anti-inflammatory medications are the mainstay of traditional treatment, if the tear isn’t complete.

Surgery is often the only other option if the tendon is completely separated.

Ankle and Foot Sprains

About 25,000 people sprain their ankles each day. It is very common in sports but may occur simply by stepping and rotating or twisting the ankle and foot either inwards or outwards. Most injuries are mild and resolve with initial ice for bruising and rest. Some, however, don’t and linger, and linger.

Arthritis

Many people have a lifetime of small wear and tear injuries that result in Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease in the ankles especially if they are large.

Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can linger, be quite painful, frustrating and severely limit mobility. Platelet rich plasma is often all that is needed to speed recovery.

 Toes and Toe Joints

The small joints of the feet are prone to the same arthritic changes as the large joints. They are also prone to injuries which accelerates the development of arthritis. The joints of the feet recover very slowly because we continue to use them.

Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma

Regardless of the cause and location in the foot and ankle, the result is significantly decreased mobility and pain. Stem cells and/or Platelet Rich Plasma are often the solution to the lingering and debilitating sprained ligament, tendon or arthritis dilemmas, especially for those who need to return to sports or an active lifestyle or job. Your own Mesenchymal Stem Cells and/or Platelet Rich Plasma hold the key. They are responsible for healing and Regenesis’ therapies concentrate, focus and activate those stem cells. They may speed your recovery, decrease pain and return functionality much quicker than conservative treatment.
