Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Procedures for
Foot & Ankle conditions.

Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating foot and ankle conditions. Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion or replacement, consider the world’s leading stem cell and prp injection treatments.

Foot and ankle injuries are common among athletes and many of these injuries can be treated non-surgically with stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma or prolotherapy, depending on the nature of the injury. Ankle arthritis is also common as we begin to age, although many of us may experience arthritis earlier than expected due to an ankle injury in our younger days. StemCell ARTS offers the nation’s most advanced stem cell and platelet treatments for foot and ankle injuries and degenerative conditions.

Ankle Ligament Tears, Sprains and Instability of the Ankle Joint

When the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle joint together are partially torn or stretched, as in the case of a bad sprain or repeated minor sprains, they can become painful, loose, and weak. This changes how you walk, putting painful stress on other joints of the foot, as well as making it more likely that you will sprain the ankle again. This leads to a cycle of chronic pain and instability.

Ankle sprains and injuries that are not too severe, may be resolved with Regenexx super concentrated PRP (platelet rich plasma) procedures. These procedures are intended to help heal damaged tissues and tighten lax ligaments due to sprain. For more substantial injuries an tears, our stem cell protocol may be recommended.

Considering Ankle Surgery, Fusion or Replacement?

Osteoarthritis of the ankle usually occurs in ankles that have experienced trauma, infection, or injury. A smooth, slippery, fibrous connective tissue, called articular cartilage, acts as a protective cushion between bones. Arthritis develops as the cartilage begins to deteriorate or is lost. As the articular cartilage is lost, the joint space between the bones narrows. This is an early symptom of osteoarthritis of the ankle and is easily seen on X-rays.

As the disease progresses, the cartilage thins, becoming grooved and fragmented. The surrounding bones react by becoming thicker. They start to grow outward and form spurs. The synovium (a membrane that produces a thick fluid that helps nourish the cartilage and keep it slippery) becomes inflamed and thickened. It may produce extra fluid, which causes additional swelling.

As an alternative to surgery, fusion or replacement, Regenexx Procedures may help alleviate pain with a non-surgical injection procedure. Patients are often encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure.
