Treatment of Foot and Ankle Conditions Through Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a promising medical field that is used to treat a wide range of diseases and conditions. It is an interdisciplinary field that uses tissue engineering and molecular biology as a process of replacing and regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore its normal function. It is an alternative method that utilizes the patient’s own cells to restore health that doesn’t require any drug or surgical procedure.

These medical strategies can benefit everyone whether you’re a professional athlete, weekend warrior or someone with an active lifestyle. It can also be used for patients suffering from diabetes especially those who are dealing with its complications.

The benefits of regenerative medicine

Nowadays, regenerative medicine strategies, including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), growth factors and stem cell therapy, are being used in treating various foot and ankle conditions. While traditional medicine focuses on managing chronic pain, regenerative medicine focuses on repairing tissues and strengthening tendons in the joints to minimize and even possibly cure pain.

Some benefits of regenerative medicine include:

  • Enhanced healing and reduced pain. While many traditional treatments focus on managing the symptoms, regenerative medicine focuses on addressing the root cause of pain. PRP and stem cell therapies do this by delivering growth factors to the injured area to facilitate the healing of tissues. This allows patients to fully heal the injured area and prevent the problem from coming back.
  • Increased functionality. Regenerative medicine promotes the production of collagen in the body which strengthens the tendons and tissues on and surrounding the joints. This can increase the range of motion in joints allowing you to move freely.
  • Faster recovery. The growth factors used in this kind of procedure help jumpstart the regenerative process of tissues and tendons which can also lead to faster healing of the injured area. Also, regenerative medicines don’t require any surgical procedure.
  • Reduced risk of future injuries and pain. Collagen tightens and strengthens the tendons and joints of your foot. This can result in a reduced risk of acquiring future injuries and pain relative to your existing foot and ankle problem.

Conditions that can be treated with regenerative medicine

Some of the foot and ankle conditions which can be treated with regenerative medicine include the following:

  • Tendonitis, tendon and ligament tears
