What is Amniotic Regenerative Therapy?
Amniotic Fluid is a nutrient rich fluid that is filled with growth factors and lubricating liquid that can help patients with a variety of painful conditions. Amniotic allographs have been used to treat many conditions such as severe burns, muscle tendon tears and knee arthritis. This fluid is aiding scientists and physicians in advancing breakthrough recovery treatments for patients with a variety of degenerative conditions. Inside each injection is a potent mixture of:
- Growth Factors – work to build a repair damaged tissue.
- Cytokines – help with anti-inflammation and pain relief.
- Anti-microbial Agents – helps prevent infection.
- Hyaluronic Acid – the “motor oil” of the joint. Lubricates and cushions.
Repair With Amniotic Allographs
Ligaments, joint capsules, muscle tendons and cartilage tend to heal slowly and inefficiently due to lack of blood supply. Blood is how we move in clotting factors and repair cells into an area. When a joint is experiencing a partial tear in a rotator cuff muscle of the shoulder or a meniscus tear in the knee, it takes months for the body to heal. When it does, it’s usually inflexible scar tissue. Amniotic fluid injections in the area may help to repair injuries and decrease the risk for an invasive surgery.
