Tendonitis can happen to athletes, runners and people who are on their feet a lot. Tendonitis is a classic overuse injury and impacts a specific tendon within the foot, the posterior tibial tendon. Most commonly, patients with tendonitis complain of pain and swelling on the inward side of the foot and ankle, and occasionally have an unsteady gait. Many patients report a recent ankle sprain, although some will have had no recent injury.
The initial treatment of tendonitis is conservative approach that is focused on resting the tendon to allow for healing. Unfortunately, even eliminating everything but normal walking may not adequately allow for the tendon to rest sufficiently.
During Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, your physician will inject amniotic fluid into the exact areas of damage. The amniotic fluid will target the inflammation and then help to promote the body’s own healing components within your blood to help heal the damage on the tendon sheath. Best of all, you can still stay active after your injection.
