Amniotic Injection Therapy

Amniotic injection therapy is an advanced regenerative medical treatment that involves the use of amniotic fluid derived from the placenta of healthy, consenting donors. This fluid is rich in growth factors, cytokines, proteins, and other biologically active compounds that promote tissue repair and regeneration. During the procedure, the amniotic fluid is injected into the affected area, such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or other soft tissues, to facilitate healing.

The therapy harnesses the natural healing properties of amniotic fluid to accelerate the body's own regenerative processes. It can be particularly effective for conditions such as tendon injuries, ligament tears, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, and other musculoskeletal disorders. By reducing inflammation, promoting cell growth, and enhancing tissue repair, amniotic injection therapy aims to alleviate pain, improve joint function, and expedite recovery.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves the extraction and concentration of platelets from the patient's own blood, which are then re-injected into the affected area of the foot or ankle. Platelets contain growth factors and other bioactive proteins that play crucial roles in tissue repair and regeneration. When injected into damaged tissue, the concentrated platelets release growth factors that stimulate the body's natural healing response, promoting tissue regeneration, reducing inflammation, and alleviating pain.

MLS Laser Therapy

MLS Laser MachineMLS laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process. It can be used to address a wide range of conditions affecting the foot and ankle, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, neuropathy, wounds, and musculoskeletal injuries. The laser energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the cells, where it triggers biochemical reactions that enhance cellular metabolism, increase blood flow, and promote the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy source for cellular repair.

One of the key benefits of MLS laser therapy in podiatry is its ability to provide pain relief and improve mobility without the need for medication or invasive procedures. Patients often experience a reduction in pain and inflammation, as well as accelerated healing of soft tissue injuries. Sessions are typically quick and painless, with no downtime, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy lifestyles.

LunulaLaser® Therapy

Lunula laser machineWhile no toenail fungus remedy guarantees 100% success, LunulaLaser® therapy demonstrates a 90% effectiveness rate in studies. The laser operates by penetrating the nail, targeting the fungus beneath without harming the nail itself. This process is non-destructive to both nails and skin, produces no smoke, and is pain-free.

Typically, patients undergo four sessions of 12-minute laser treatments, spread over a few weeks, to fully eliminate their toenail fungus. There are no special preparations or post-treatment care needed. Simply arrive for your appointment, undergo the treatment, and leave without any discomfort.

Shockwave Therapy

shockwave treatmentShockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), is a non-invasive medical treatment that involves the application of high-energy acoustic waves to the affected area. Patients typically undergo a series of treatment sessions, during which the shockwaves are delivered to the affected area using a specialized device.

Shockwave therapy is commonly used to treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, heel spurs, and other forms of chronic foot and ankle pain. The shockwaves generated by the device penetrate the skin and target the underlying tissues, where they induce microtrauma and promote the formation of new blood vessels, leading to increased blood flow and tissue repair.
