New Treatment Option for Chronic Heel Pain

Those suffering from chronic heel pain often must chose between NSAID therapy and  corticosteriod injections. When those conservative options don’t work, surgery looms as the last source of hope. Now, there is another option, one that promises to help your body replace defective tissue, in essence pushing your body to heal itself.

Amniotic tissue harvested from umbilical cords has powerful regenerative properties that promote healing. This makes it an ideal source for delivering advanced therapies to alleviate:

  • Inflamation
  • Restricted joint range-of-motion
  • Scar tissue formation

The therapy is available through an in-office injection.

It is covered by a small set of insurances at the moment, and is FDA approved. Contact Dr. Ciba to inquire whether this treatment option is right for you.
