Biologic Treatment in Lakewood, CA
Pain-Free Living With the Help of Cutting-Edge Advancements in Science
Biologic treatment can help expedite the natural healing process of damaged joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Through the use of biologic treatment in Lakewood, CA, our highly experienced podiatrist has been able to help patients with their classic foot and ankle injuries.
As a leading podiatry practice, Tagaloa-Tulifau Foot & Ankle Center takes advantage of cutting-edge scientific advancements to provide biologic treatment, including Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy.
Amniotic fluid surrounds a fetus as it grows in the mother’s womb. This fluid contains unique healing properties due to its high concentration of stem cells. The stem cells of amniotic fluid include a component called the extracellular matrix (ECM), which cannot be found in other types of stem cells.
During your amniotic stem cell therapy procedure, our doctor will inject specially treated amniotic fluid into the injured joint or area. The ECM in these stem cells will effectively jumpstart your body’s own cells into repairing your injured tissue. When used either in the office as a drug-free injection or in surgery, these safe grafts integrate into your own soft tissue to decrease inflammation, pain, and swelling.
What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Unlike more traditional steroid injections or surgical procedures, amniotic stem cell injections carry very little risk and numerous healing benefits.
No cartilage loss – While steroid injections can cause the cartilage in your joint or joints to degenerate, stem cell injections will not damage your cartilage at all.
No painful recovery – In addition to the risks that accompany any kind of surgery, you can expect a long and painful rehabilitation period following orthopedic surgery. Amniotic stem cell injections, on the other hand, are virtually pain-free!
Improved healing – Steroid injections typically treat only your painful symptoms in an attempt to delay surgery. Stem cell injections, on the other hand, promote actual healing in your body. Your condition is treated, not just your symptoms, so surgery can be avoided altogether rather than simply delayed!
The Goals of Biologic Treatment are:
- Regeneration – Boosting your body’s natural ability to heal itself back to its original state.
- Restoration – Allow for damaged tissue to return to healthy function.
