What are Tendon & Ligament Injuries?

Tendons and ligaments can become injured in a variety of ways, but the most common problem is a slow degradation of the tissue, that happens for unknown reasons. For TENNIS ELBOW and patellar and Achilles Tendonitis the problem typically begins with local inflammation, but leads to a breakdown of the tissue at the insertion of the tendon. However it begins it can cause miserable pain. Sometimes you cannot walk well, or even hold a canned drink because of the pain. All you want is to find your way back to health.

Biologic therapy can help. It can heal the injured tissue, and we can show you the best option to get you back to health.

Plantar fasciitis is a chronic inflammatory problem in the ligament structures which make up the band of tissue responsible for holding foot bones in position. Pain is often felt on the bottom of the foot and is much worse after inactivity. This type of pain can be terrible in the mornings, easing some with walking, and can last for years. There is a higher incidence plantar fasciitis with high arches, flat feet and with obesity or gait problems. Most often patients are taught to “stretch the heel cord” and to use sole inserts, but the pain often lasts indefinitely. Amniotic products can be a remarkable solution for the problem.
