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. The onset may be related to repetitive activities and stress, and is more common in individuals over 30. PRP and amniotic products may quickly relieve this pain.
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.

Effective Treatment Options
Tendon and ligament injuries can cause daily pain that limits activity and keeps you from doing the things you love. Traditional approaches often do not work, and this includes surgical options.
Regenerative medicine has proven very effective for these issues. PRP and Amniotic products, injected into the area after a local anesthetic can be very effective, cause minimal procedural pain, and lead to resolution of the problems causing pain. This can be a very affordable solution to a long term problem and can help you avoid surgery and return to the active lifestyle you once had.
