The Achilles tendon is that cord that you feel down the back of your lower leg from your calf muscle down to your heel bone, and it is what makes your foot push off of the ground. Pain in this tendon is typically Achilles tendonitis. Nagging Achilles tendinitis can really disrupt your exercise routine, your work and your lifestyle! When your pain becomes chronic, it is known as "Achilles tendinosis." If your pain has not gotten better and your doctor already told you that you need surgery, don't give up yet! There is an alternative to surgery for certain types of Achilles tendon conditions.
As an expert in regenerative medicine, I can tell you that this form of therapy offers your body an opportunity to heal itself. It really has revolutionized the way I think about both acute and chronic injuries. In the world of regenerative medicine, there is still hope for people with Achilles tendinosis. I'm specifically speaking about umbilical cord allograft tissue derived "Exosomes" which, in their injected form, has been used for years to treat injuries, due to its anti-inflammatory effect and healing properties. Exosomes, obtained from the umbilical cord tissue of healthy, post-partum consenting mothers, are the messengers that carry proteins and make effective pathways for communication between cells to help facilitate healing. Our older cells recieve these exosome given proteins and messages, and replicate into younger healthier cells which, in turn, accelerate the repair and regeneration of aging and/ or damaged tissues. FAANT obtains their exosomes from the only exosome lab that has a master file with the FDA, with double the concentration of any other exosome products available, and is formulated at a 20 billion per milliliter solution. This thicker fluid is dense in everything your Achilles tendon needs to help the tendon heal without surgery to step up healing to a whole new level! If you are suffering from Achilles tendonitis, please do not hesitate a visit to get your healing started!
