Stem cell treatment for feet or ankle pain may be an ideal for those who suffer from osteoarthritis, ligament tears, or tendon injuries. Traditional surgeries can require arthroscopy, bone fusion, and tendon grafts screwed into place to hold the joint together. Any of these can be painful and require a long rehabilitation and recovery period, which can make the traditionally simple acts of walking and driving very difficult. Stem cell therapy requires a simple injection of concentrated regenerative cells into the injured area, which help the body heal itself.

Stem cell therapy may be ideal for treating:

  • dreamstime_xxl_3023176Mild to moderate osteoarthritis
  • Tendon inflammation
  • Partial Achilles tendon tear
  • Muscle strain/sprain

Stem cell therapy is not able to treat:

  • Severe ankle osteoarthritis
  • Acute fracture
  • Complete Achilles tear

While not every patient with foot or ankle pain or injury is a candidate for stem cell therapy, the team at Colorado Spine Institute in Loveland can provide an initial exam and consultation at our office to determine your suitability for the procedure.
