Amniotic Allograft Injections
At Appalachian Rejuvenation, our amniotic allograft injections aim to alleviate the pain and discomfort that come with inflammation and tissue damage.
What is an Amniotic Allograft?
Amniotic allografts are tissue grafts that have the ability to help the body regenerate a variety of different cells and are beneficial in orthopedic surgery, wound repair and accelerated healing. The allografts are derived from the amniotic sac of healthy donors who are pre-screened while pregnant and selected after a strict screening process. The tissue is then cryopreserved and used to treat localized tissue defects and areas of inflammation. They are a rich source of growth factors, hyaluronic acid, proteins and essential nutrients.
What can Amniotic Allografts do?
Because of their growth factors and their low risk of reacting with the immune system, an amniotic allograft injection is useful in treating damaged and inflamed tissue. Their regenerative qualities can shorten the time it takes for patients to recover from injuries or surgical procedures, allowing them to return to normal activities at a faster pace. As such, unique properties of amniotic allografts are not only beneficial towards tissue damage or inflammation but can also improve clinical outcomes for patients to recover quickly from future injuries or medical procedures.
What is the procedure like?
Amniotic allograft injection procedures are performed by delivering the tissue to patients via injection. A needle with the tissue allograft is placed in the targeted area. Cellular components combined with growth factors are delivered to these regions to aid the body’s cells in repairing tissue. They are often used in procedures for osteoarthritis and tendon conditions such as plantar fasciitis and other pathologies.
Are there any risks?
Side effects can happen with any treatment but are minimal with amniotic allograft injections. As with any injection type procedure, there is a risk of localized infection and bruising.
