Are you suffering or recovering from a sports injury in the foot or ankle? We know that lower leg injuries can be debilitating. Often these conditions make it difficult to walk, let alone get back out to the field. Although anti-inflammatories and braces can serve as effective ankle and foot pain treatment, sometimes they aren’t enough. You can’t simply keep doing the same things and hoping it will eventually fix your ankle pain. Treatment beyond the basics may be just what you need, and that’s where AmnioFix injections come into play.
AmnioFix is non-surgical pain treatment to help treat and prevent sports injuries. With AmnioFix, powderized amniotic fluid (commonly used in stem cell treatments) is combined with an anesthetic and then injected into the injured area. The fluid not only serves to reduce inflammation, but build-up also reduces the build-up of scar time and improves your recovery time. These benefits make AmnioFix a premiere ankle, heel and foot pain treatment.

AmnioFix injections are a non-surgical option for active players that want to quickly heal their ankle or foot injury and improve their performance.

Combat Common Foot Injuries and Conditions
The world of sports medicine has developed a variety of treatments for the different injuries a doctor expects to see in athletes. When it comes to lower leg injuries, AmnioFix injections are a solution to many potential pains. AmnioFix is available for injuries to your Achilles tendon, including Achilles’ tendinitis, and tendinosis. It also provides a foot pain treatment option for those dealing with plantar fasciitis. Your doctor may also recommend an AmnioFix ankle pain treatment for a sprain or bursitis.
How to Know If AmnioFix Injections are Right For You
You should always consult with your podiatrist or primary care physician to find the best foot and ankle pain treatment plan for you. There are several factors to consider when determining if AmnioFix is the right option for you to prevent sports injuries and help with recovery. Although your doctor will ultimately help you to decide, there are some common indicators that show AmnioFix is likely your best bet:
- You are suffering from a foot, ankle or heel injury which causes pain as a result of inflammation.
- You have tried treatments including anti-inflammatory medications, braces, and physical therapy; however, they have not provided you with the pain and inflammation relief you were hoping for.
- You have already reached your doctor-recommended limit on steroid-based treatments, or are looking for a non-steroid ankle or foot pain treatment option.

What to Expect With Amnio Injections
AmnioFix injections are a simple, outpatient procedure. You don’t have to worry about spending a night at the hospital or any other prolonged spell with your doctor. The site of your injection may remain tender for two to three days following the injection. If you experience pain from the treatment, it can be moderated with the application of ice. Elevating your injured ankle also helps to minimize discomfort in the days following treatment. Physical therapy may also be suggested as a compliment to your AmnioFix treatment.
