These injections are a good option for pain relief without having to go through surgery. AmnioFix is a human amniotic membrane graft supplied in powder form so physicians can deliver tissues through an injection. It is composed of growth hormones to stimulate cellular growth, migration, differentiation, and duplication. It works well with tissue inflammation, micro tears, scar tissue, tendonitis, and other joint conditions. AmnioFix membrane tissues are derived from maternal placenta’s donated by consenting and healthy mothers that are undergoing scheduled Cesarean section births.
The entire procedure can be done in one visit to your physician. After the injection is given, it is recommended that you rest for a couple days and do not overwork the area of injection so that the optimal regrowth may take place.
