New Use for Amniofix

A new study came out this past month describing the use of micronized dehydrated human amniotic/chorionic membrane for the treatment of plantar fasciitis (Read Full Article). The authors describe the successful treatment of chronic cases of plantar fasciitis with dehydrated amniotic membrane and report that some patients experienced improvement in symptoms as early as one week after the treatment. These patients were reported to experience improvement in their symptoms throughout the eight week study period after the treatment.

We spoke to Dr. Sara Gould about this new treatment for plantar fasciitis. “This is an interesting study” she said, “There has already been literature published on the healing effect of the amniotic membrane for chronic wounds. The fact that it has applications for other chronic injuries is in line with those studies.  “I think this study provides encouraging evidence for the use of amniotic membrane in chronic plantar fasciitis.”  At Regional Orthopedics, Dr Gould is using Amniofix dehydrated human amniotic membrane for many of these applications. To see if you might benefit from Amniofix therapy, please contact Regional Orthopedics today.
