Many patients use exercise and outdoor activities to help manage stress in their daily lives. It can be very frustrating when an injury prevents you from enjoying the activities that you love. Injuries make it hard to be competitive at work and in athletic activities, not to mention being your best at home and with your family.
Common foot and ankle injuries such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis can benefit from biologic injections. These injectables contain the same material and fluids that are found in your body and have been proven effective in the regeneration of new tissue that helps your body repair itself. They are injected into or around an injured or inflamed area of the foot or ankle to enhance healing and recovery. Biologic injections are used to relieve symptoms and to create actual healing, not just mask the pain. They may also reduce the need for medications or surgery.
