Amnion for Joint Pain
Amnion membrane holds many different characteristics, but it shares two common features: in the appropriate environment of the body, amnion membrane cells are able to self-renew and they have the ability to become more specialized cells such as bone, blood, or muscle. Amnion Membrane (AM) therapy involves the harvesting of amniotic tissue and fluid from a woman at birth, processing to remove impurities to avoid rejection by another body and then reimplanting them, specifically in the area of pain or injury, in order to regenerate damaged tissue and eliminate pain.
High-level athletes have used Amnion Membrane (AM) therapy for a few years in order to accelerate healing when dealing with pain or injury. Recent advancements in the field of regenerative medicine have made it possible to offer these innovative procedures to all patients who are a good candidate.
Many patients find this procedure appealing for its long list of benefits. Unlike steroid injections and surgery, the procedure includes little to no risk. Most patients find the 25-minute procedure to be painless, with minimal downtime. While every injury and condition is unique, some patients have been able find relief in as little as one to two weeks after the injection.
Choosing AM (Amnion Membrane) as an alternative to surgery provides a long list of benefits, with little to no side effects. For instance, regenerative medicine procedures such as AM or Amniotic Fluid (AF), potentially reduces or eliminates the risk of infection. Recovery time for AM or AF therapy is significantly less than surgery, non-invasive and many patients report that the procedure is done with minimal discomfort.
At Amnion, we process Amnion Membrane (AM) and Amniotic Fluid (AF) using advanced methods that include purification and sterile filtration technology to remove blood cells and other insoluble debris. This proprietary processing technology has been verified to preserve over 400 native cytokines, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid components found in amniotic fluid.
