The cure for sports injuries is often elusive. Returning to sports without chronic pain or a permanent injury is most challenging for the professional athlete or the weekend-warrior. The expanding field of regenerative medicine now offers a new and promising treatment option in amniotic membrane injections.Recently published randomized studies and case articles report improvement with placental membrane injections. The literature supporting successful long-term outcomes of treatment with other regenerative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections remains controversial. In contrast, amnion does not require the patient’s own blood. Specifically, amniotic fluid and placental membrane both deliver a regenerative punch to the injured tissues by concentrating growth factors that recruit the body’s own adult stem cells to repair the damage.
