Amniovo is an advanced treatment for various soft tissue injuries and conditions that can result in faster, better healing processes. On a technical level, it is a composite amniotic tissue membrane. Amniotic tissue comes from the innermost layer of the placenta, which means it is a naturally-occurring material. This tissue is rich in growth factors and cytokines (substances secreted by cells in the immune system that can affect other cells).
There is slight manipulation performed to these natural tissues to protect their natural properties, which are capable of reducing inflammation and scarring, enhancing healing, and acting as a protective barrier. Additionally, it is prepared in various configurations for optimal use in several applications (surgery recovery, soft tissue repair, etc.).
Amniovo is durable, safe, and will help you recover better, in a shorter amount of time. It can be particularly beneficial for patients who suffer from common sources of heel pain like Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis.For more information on Amniovo treatment, and to see if it is right for the foot or ankle condition affecting you, simply give Massapequa Podiatry Associates a call at (516) 541-9000.
