ankle pain that won't go away

Ankle pain that won’t go away

Ankle pain that is refractory to traditional conservative measures often results in suggestions for surgery. Alternatives to ankle surgery in the situation when you have ankle pain that won’t go away may call upon options for regenerative medicine procedures.

Ankle pain that won't go away
Living with chronic ankle pain?

Regenerative medicine encompasses a variety of realms in which the primary aim is to apply emphasis on repair of the tissue rather than yield to the timetable of natural degeneration or ankle joint arthritis.

Repair may manifest in many ways including attempts to stop or alter the inflammatory process that on a cellular and structural level is where degeneration begins.

Previous drug-based therapies were ineffective in halting this progression towards joint wear and tear. Prior trauma is a significant risk factor for the future development of arthritis.

The local cellular responses that occur after initial joint trauma are being studied to develop initial treatment responses that may alter this progression from the beginning, effectively changing joint destiny.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are being pursued by athletes in acute injuries, people suffering from chronic ankle problems and arthritis or as an alternative to surgery.

Chronic ankle pain is being rethought. What was once felt to be a simple ankle sprain may have unseen cartilage damage that may slowly erode and damage the ankle joint. MRI scans can see traumatic injuries that were not identified on routine x-rays.

Newer regenerative based biological therapies such as Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell therapies are being intensively studied to combine the latest research developments with new models for repair. Osteochondral defects, Avascular necrosis, and degenerative joint disease have been treated. Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy utilize repair mechanisms by growth factors and regenerative therapy to promote tissue repair. 

The body is not always able to heal adequately. Injuries linger, cartilage begins to wear, bones begin to show the effects of the stress. The body sometimes needs assistance to correct these problems and heal properly.

As newer treatment methods replace old ones, repair may look to your own body’s healing response as an alternative to ankle joint surgery, fusion, and ankle joint replacement. A biological joint replacement that incorporates PRP and Stem Cell Therapy may be a medical spectrum, with treatment that evolves as you age, not as you wear out.
