Modern sports and activities paired with the shoes we wear have greatly contributed to the foot and ankle injuries that people suffer from. Failing to stretch properly or overloading the foot and ankle with sudden, overwhelming pressure can result in tendon damage or degrade the health of your joints.
This 2008 study highlights the primary risk factors that contribute to foot and ankle injury as such “Foot pain affects nearly one in five of people in the community, is associated with increased age, female sex, obesity and pain in other body regions, and has a significant detrimental impact on health-related quality of life.” The professionals at Stem Cellutions are helping our patients avoid expensive and risky foot and ankle surgery by providing regenerative medicine therapies like stem cell injections and platelet-rich plasma therapy.
Causes of Foot and Ankle Injury
There are many ways to suffer a foot or ankle injury. You can suffer a traumatic injury like a broken or fractured bone from an impactful fall or overloading pressure. You can also suffer from degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis that slowly reduce the function of your ankle joints and cause significant pain. Other causes of progressive injury and pain are as follow:
Peroneal tendon tears or splits (tendonitis)
Ligament sprains or tears
Subtalar arthritis or instability
Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Foot and Ankle Injury Symptoms
If you are suffering from a foot and ankle injury, it will most likely limit your mobility or in more severe cases the pain and swelling can be completely disabling. Some of the symptoms you may be experiencing are as follows:
Decreased range of motion
Stiffness in joints
You want to be extremely vigilant when it comes to your foot and ankle health. Allowing an injury to persist and potentially worsen will only make recovery more difficult or impossible. Consult with the specialists at Stem Cellutions about the regenerative therapy that would provide you with the greatest benefit. By choosing this non-invasive method, you could be able to avoid unnecessary and risky surgical procedures.
Stem cells can be extracted from adipose (fat) or bone marrow and are packed with unprogrammed cells that, once introduced to an injury site, stimulate the process of cellular regeneration.
PRP uses an extract from your blood that has been separated and condensed into a concentrated dose of plasma. Packed with the building blocks for cellular growth, it provides an injury site with everything it needs to replace damaged tissue.
