How does amniotic stem cell therapy work and what benefits does stem cell therapy offer?

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative injection technique that infuses a damaged joint with stem cells from amniotic tissues into your body, as well as the other components that make up the amniotic tissue layer: growth factors that stimulate tissue growth, hyaluronic acid (a natural joint lubricant/buffer that improves mobility), and naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents such as cytokines et. al. This is collectively known as a “placental tissue matrix.” While this matrix has anti-inflammatory properties, much like cortisone and steroid shots, the beneficial effects of stem cell therapy goes well beyond the benefits and capabilities of standard injection therapy. Stem cell injections also have antimicrobial (germ-killing) and anti-fibrotic (i.e. ability to break down scar tissue) properties as well.

Injectable steroids and oral or topical pain medications only provide temporary pain relief and to nothing to address the underlying problem; stem cells restore damaged tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body.

Are stem cell injections safe?

While there are risks with any procedure that involves injections, the laboratory that Vitality Medical Centers uses for their stem cells has, to date, reported over 150,000 stem cell injection procedures without a single reported adverse effect. There are, of course, always risks associated with an injection procedure (e.g. pain, bleeding, risk of infection, etc.) but sterile technique and administration by a trained physician minimizes these risks.

  • Amniotic stem cell therapy is a preferred type of stem cell therapy because the cells come from an immune privileged site, which means that patient-rejection is all but non-existent.
  • The use of amniotic stem cells is well researched, safe, and effective. Amniotic stem cells have been used by ophthalmologists and plastic surgeons for the last 20 years.
  • All amniotic stem cell donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

Am I a candidate for stem cell therapy?

Patients suffering from any kind of joint, tendon, or ligament pain may be potential candidates for amniotic stem cell therapy. Please keep in mind that not every patient is a reasonable candidate for stem cell therapy and that results from these injections may vary from no response to complete relief of symptoms. Upon evaluation, our physician may be able to provide you with alternative recommendations for treatment of particular conditions, such as physical therapy, viscosupplementation, prolotherapy or PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections, chiropractic care, etc.

How long will it take me to recover?

The procedure itself takes about an hour in the office.  After the procedure, tissue typically takes between one and three months to repair itself, but most patients will notice a change in their symptoms within one to two months. While the total number of injections required may vary depending on age and the type and severity of the condition, most patients require 2-4 sets of injections spaced apart.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist. Common carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include tingling and numbness in your fingers and hand and hand weakness.

Beyond rest and ice packs, treatment for carpel tunnel syndrome can include splinting, medications and for severe cases, surgery. Because surgery can be expensive and isn’t guaranteed to correct carpal tunnel syndrome, some patients are seeking out adult stem therapy to address inflammation that might be pinching the nerve, thereby relieving the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Viscosupplementation is a non-surgical procedure for patients suffering with knee pain due to osteoarthritis. Typically covered by insurance, this procedure can oftentimes help patients avoid knee replacement surgery.

What are Hyaluronic Acid – Viscosupplementation Injections?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found the human body. Hyaluronic acid is a type of viscous carbohydrate called a glycosaminoglycan, and ultimately a major component of the mechanism involving the natural protection and lubircation of the joints. Hyaluronic acid also maintains a smoothly operating joint as a form of lubrication and as cushioning to absorb the pressures of normal activity. It works as a repair agent and maintains the health and structure of joints to avoid friction, deterioration and development of arthritis. Hyaluronic acids used for medical injections are typically derived from rooster combs or grown by bacteria in laboratories. The substance is then injectied into the patient’s damaged knee or hip joint to provide smoother movement with less pain and increased ability to bear weight.

What is the Procedure for HA- Viscosupplementation Injections?
HA-viscosupplementation injection only takes a few minutes per session. Before performing the procedure Dr. Stavrakos will do an ultrasound guided evaluation of the joint and, after injection of a small amount of anesthetic, he may aspirate (remove by needle) any excess fluid in the joint (aka an effusion) that can be a source of pain and discomfort. This is followed by the actual HA-viscosupplementation injection; the needle is inserted carefully using ultrasound guidance technology to direct it to the target location. Dr. Stavrakos usually recommends relative rest and no strenuous activity of the treated area for at least 48 hours. The protocol for most HA-viscosupplementation injections is typically one injection a week for three weeks.

Why Choose HA-viscosupplementation Injections?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body to prevent further damage to the joint and recent evidence suggests it may slow the process of degenerative arthritis. A successful treatment with HA-Viscosupplementation should provide good to excellent symptom relief for six months to up to two years. It may further reduce or eliminate the need for chronic use of pain medications, most of which modern science is learning may have harmful long term-effects on patients’ health.

Corticosteroid injections may help patients with joint pain due to injury, arthritis, or other inflammatory conditions.  These injections may help relieve pain and inflammation in your joint.  Typically, steroid injections consist of a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic.  Because of possible side effects, repetitive injections in the same joint are usually not recommended.

Why Choose Steroid Injections for Joint Pain?

Steroid injections are done when a patient has an acute injury and/or inflammation in their joints such as knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists, ankles, hands or feet.  For minor injuries, this may be all a patient will need.  If the injury or condition is more serious, we have other conservative interventions that may be more helpful.

Why Choose Peak Health for My Joint Steroid Injection?

When doing joint injections, the providers at Peak Health use imaging such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy to watch the procedure and make sure the material is placed in the correct spot.  Because of this, the likelihood of getting positive results is higher than “going in blind”.

What are Trigger Point Injections?
Trigger points are concentrated areas of pain that often occur due to small “knots” formed in the muscles over time, and can be treated with the injection of different substances to reduce pain and dysfunction.  These injections are performed using a very small needle, approximately the size of an acupuncture needle, and the patients oftentimes don’t even feel the procedure.

What is the procedure for Trigger Point Injections?
After your medical provider has completed a thorough history and physical examination, the patient may set a date and prepare for the treatment.  Since trigger points are when the muscles become knotted and the nerves are damaged in similar ways the same injections can be applied to these concentrated pain points.  We typically recommend trigger point injections 1-2 times per week for 4 weeks depending on the number of trigger points and severity of your symptoms.

What is Electrodiagnostic Testing?
The human body is an incredible powerhouse that sends information via electrical signals. Nerves and muscles create these signals so the brain can send them to activate the motor system. Everything from running, lifting your hand, chewing and every other action requires a certain amount of energy and electricity. When nerves and muscles are damaged these electrical signals are blocked or slowed down. If you experience pain, weakness lack feeling in some areas you may need to ask your doctor about electrodiagnostics tests. Some of the conditions that EMG testing can discover include: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, radiculopathies (i.e. pinched nerves in the neck or back), neuropathies (generalized nerve damage) among many others. There are two main tests utilized in most offices the first is Electromyography (EMG) which is the reading of electrical activity in the muscles. The other test is Nerve conduction studies (NCS), which allows the doctor to pinpoint the area where the nerves are damaged most. With the use of theses tests combined doctors can help patients find out exactly what they are suffering from and find the best possible solution.

What is the procedure for Electrodiagnostic Testing?
Before pursuing Electrodiagnostic testing, one must inform their  doctor’s office of any blood thinning medications as the needles required for the procedure may cause slight bleeding, as well as any recent infection, history of cancer or of an implanted defibrillator so that appropriate safety measures for the patient’s sake may be undertaken.

EMG testing requires a few very thin and small needles that are placed into the muscles. These needles then pick up the electrical activity when the patient tenses and relaxes the muscle being tested. The electricity is transferred to a screen that translates the electricity into sound and images. The needles are then removed and the patient is free to go, the results are typically shown immediately after the tests. Slight pain and bruising may occur, but there no other severe side effects.

NCS testing is typically done  prior to EMG testing to evaluate the nerve at a closer level. During this test the doctor tapes wires, electrodes, to the body along certain nerve pathways to be stimulated by an electrical current. This current is followed and recorded by the electrodes. The speed of electrical impulses in the body’s nerves can reach up to 120 meters per second, so when the results are reviewed the speed and health of the nerves can be observed and addressed. Doctors can then continue to test the nerves at certain points to find the problem area. The only pain experienced during this test are the electrical current that can be felt for only a few seconds, other than that the patients are free to go and view their results immediately after completing the test.

Why use Electrodiagnostic Testing?
With the advancements of medical technology doctors are finding more ways to detect and determined exactly what an injury or condition may be. With tests like EMGs we can use science to discovered symptoms that are invisible to the naked eye and avoid incorrect diagnoses. Compared to other testing methods needle EMG and NCS cause only a small amount of discomfort, no/minor side effects and show immediate results unlike other available techniques such as blood samples, urine tests, and CT scans. In the last few decades physicians have learned how to read and understand the body’s complex electrical system and what it can tell us about our health.

EMG testing can provide information about nerve and muscle problems that cannot be determined by other means, and can greatly help in interpreting the findings of other studies like an MRI or CT scan (these studies show structure, but an EMG will show nerve function that may help explain what abnormalities on the imaging study are ones most likely causing the problem).

PRP is an innovative medical procedure for knee pain, osteoarthritis, and injuries.

What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP) Therapy is an alternative prolotherapy treatment that is derived from the patient’s very own blood! Platelets are produced in the bone marrow and make up only a tiny fraction of a person’s blood volume . When the body is damaged, the platelets are in charge of both clotting the injury while growth factors they release stimulate the regeneration of tissue. The platelets therefore as a repair system for the body, using their unique abilities to return the body to normal as quickly as possible. If you think of the body as a machine, PRP injections are therefore simply providing the body with more power, resources and energy in a concentrated form. Many patients, particularly athletes, are choosing this treatment in the hopes of avoiding invasive procedures such as surgery and dependence on medications.

What is the PRP procedure?
The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy procedure requires only a few simple steps that can all be accomplished in one visit. First a medical staff member takes a blood sample from the patient, which is typically 50 milliliters. That sample is then inserted into an EmCyte centrifuge, a device that spins and separates the layers of the blood. Once the components of blood are separated, the now super-concentrated platelets can be harvested along with some plasma (the liquid component of the blood) and create the appropriately named platelet rich plasma solution. The effect of “spinning” the blood twice and harvesting these platelets is to produce a solution that has a much higher concentration of the growth factor rich platelets than are found in blood normally, in the range of six to up to ten times greater. This platelet rich plasma (PRP) solution is then injected into the patient’s damaged tissues to stimulate tissue repair. After the procedure is complete the patient may leave and return to their normal routine in as little as a few weeks! This procedure is simple, natural and usually very effective.

Why Choose PRP Therapy?
Platelets exist in abundance throughout the entire circulatory system in most people. The concentrated injection of growth factors these platelets provide allows PRP therapy to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. Dr. Stavrakos and his team focus on the use of PRP for sports related injuries and musculoskeletal conditions in athletes and non-athletes alike. One of the greatest advantages of platelet rich plasma injections is the ability to potentially avoid surgery altogether. By “tweaking” the body’s natural healing ability, invasive procedures that used to be patients’ only options in the past may no longer be needed, and a shortened injury recovery time can often be achieved. A number of professional athletes such as Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, Hines Ward (who was able to play in Super Bowl XL thanks to PRP Therapy and win the MVP trophy) and many more have vouched for the success of this treatment on their injuries. PRP is not just for athletes, and has been used to successfully treat  arthritis, chronic tendonitis (aka tendinosis), ligament and joint cartilage damage, and more. Since this injection consists of the patient’s own blood there is no fear of rejection, toxicity, or disease transfer. Now that more and more doctors and patients understand the benefits of this procedure its popularity as a treatment for musculoskeletal pain has soared.

What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is short for proliferation therapy, a nonsurgical way to treat lower back pain, tendinitis, osteoarthritis and some sports injuries. These injections are made up of natural substances as well as anesthetics to reduce the discomfort of the procedure. Injection formulas contain naturally occurring substances such dextrose (a 10-chain sugar derived from corn), saline, Sarapin (an extract from the pitcher plant), as well as numbing agents like Ropivacaine. The prolotherapy injection causes localized inflammation to essentially “trick” the body to jump-start and optimize the natural healing process to repair and rebuild damaged tissue such as ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles. With the prolotherapy injection’s initiation, the body creates new, stronger tissue over damaged areas. Structures such as ligaments (that connect bones) and tendons (that attach muscles to bones) as well as joint cartilage are often a major source of pain and disability because of their poor healing ability in adults; Prolotherapy works by directing growth factors in the blood via the localized inflammation to damaged connective tissue to effect more efficient repair than would occur if left alone.

What is the Prolotherapy procedure?
Prolotherapy injection procedures are similar to other injections commonly seen in medicine . Before the  Prolotherapy solution is administered, injections of an anesthetic under the skin with a small, thin needle will be given to decrease the discomfort of the procedure. Once the numbing agent is working, a small needle is injected into the tissues that require treatment (in many cases, at the attachment sites of ligaments and tendons to bone). Depending on the area of the body and severity of the damaged area a series of injections may be needed, typically about 3 to 4 weeks apart. The number of sessions needed can be as few as one or two or as many as six to eight. After the procedure, patients are typically prescribed certain pain medications to help with the post injection discomfort, and are recommended to use the MEAT (Movement, Exercise, Analgesia, and Treatment) protocol, as the healing process continues.

Why choose Prolotherapy?
We offer this procedure to patients who wish to avoid surgeries and to decrease or get off of pain medications, and aid in helping reduce the disability associated with painful musculoskeletal problems. Some of the conditions that may be treated include (but are not limited to): tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, joint osteoarthritis, chronic neck or back pain, pelvic pain, meniscal tears and many other musculoskeletal ailments. Most doctors practicing Prolotherapy concur that 80 % to 90%  of patients report positive results and less discomfort overall. Modern Prolotherapy has been in existence for over 75 years and has treated everyday people, professional athletes, even a former Surgeon General of the United States, who afterwards recommended it to his colleagues. The end result is a healthier patient on fewer medications, which translates to lower risk of side effects and physician related complications, the ability to avoid more painful, riskier invasive procedures, and ultimately a better quality of life!

What is Neural Prolotherapy?

Neural prolotherapy is another method to help ease pain in patients with neuropathy symptoms. This treatment is a more specific version of traditional prolotherapy because it targets neurogenic inflammation, in superficial nerves – in other words, irritated, painful nerves just under the skin. These nerves can be a significant cause of pain, numbness, burning, tingling and other discomfort when injuries and certain chronic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy form.  The injections contain low concentrations of dextrose or mannitol (natural sugars)that are administered just under the skin at multiple selected points along the pathways of the inflamed nerves to both decrease the symptoms and promote healing. Dextrose, one of the most common substances found in traditional prolotherapy, is presumed to decrease the production of proteins that amplify pain (e.g. substance P, CGRP) and upregulate substances that promote pain reduction and healing (e.g. galanin, somatostatin) .  Injecting directly into these painful nerves just under the skin can go so far as to affect the symptoms felt in deeper structures like joints and muscles.

What is the procedure for Neural Prolotherapy?

After your provider has completed a thorough history and physical examination, the patient may set a date and prepare for the treatment.  For the best success, we typically recommend treatments twice per week for five weeks for an average of 10 treatments depending on the severity of the neuropathy.

Chiropractic is a revolutionary discipline of medicine which focuses on the proper diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system disorders. Chiropractic is mainly and mostly concerned with the disorders of spine. Peak Health offers unparalleled Chiropractic care to the people who have tried almost all other kinds of treatments for their spinal injuries, displacements or pain. The very notion of Chiropractic lies in the fact that human nervous system controls the whole human body and if it is not working properly, the human body will not be at peace. Our state of the art Chiropractic treatment facility is the best Chiropractor in Orlando.

Dr Del Rio, the founder of Peak Health believes that spinal misalignments, injuries and pain can even cause unrest in those parts of human body which are not directly linked with spinal cord. At Peak Health, we believe that a drug-free and side-effects free treatment of spinal misalignments can be made possible by gentle and careful adjustment of bones. Once the spine is in order, the human nervous system starts working properly and it naturally heals the body. While chiropractic is mostly linked with nervous system and spine, once applied properly, it takes care of very serious health issues e.g. arthritis, sports injuries, headaches, backbone pain and carpal tunnel etc.

The best thing about chiropractic treatment is that it does not require drugs with many serious side-effects or life-threatening surgeries. It is based on the notion that a wrong can be undone and everything can be fixed. That is, if there is a person who is in pain because of spinal misalignments, they do not have to go through expensive surgeries or drugs; a simple adjustment of the misaligned bones can fix the issue and provide a speedy, smooth and risk-free natural healing. Chiropractors at Peak Health simply heal people with years old spinal misalignments by applying very precise force to the spine.

Our chiropractors attended chiropractic schools for 8 to 9 years, just like the medical doctors. One of the main differences is with how both types of health practitioners heal their patients. While medical doctors learn to prescribe medication, chiropractors spend their time in acing the art of fixing and adjusting the spine. Just like medical doctors, chiropractor also read a lot and they also get to specialize in their favorite area of care e.g. sports, pediatric etc.

However, chiropractic care is not all that Luis Del Rio or his fellow chiropractors at Peak Health offer. The Health & Spine Care Center in Kissimmee also offers full body massage therapy. From therapeutic to relaxation massages, we offer our customizable massage therapies to people who want to relax their nerves and spine by a thorough massage.

Apart from the massage therapy, we also provide weight-loss and nutrition counseling. We believe that one of the main reasons of spinal pain and misalignments is obesity. We listen to you and work with you to get the results that you expect. Our programs are 100% personalized and tailored to the needs of each individual client. We strive to get you the bodyline and the life quality that you crave for.

What is an occipital nerve block?

Patients who experience chronic headaches often tell us that their pain arises from the base of their skull or neck.  The pain typically radiates from the neck or base of the skull to the top of the head, temple, eye, and/or forehead.  Because of this, a common and effective treatment for patients with chronic headaches is Occipital Nerve Blocks.  Pain relief can begin as soon as 15 minutes after the procedure.  The length of the relief varies from patient to patient and could last days, weeks or even months and is often more effective at suppressing headaches than oral medications.  Your physician at Peak Health can advise you on the best treatment plan for your headaches.

What is an ankle nerve block?

An ankle nerve block is a safe local anesthetic medication (bupivacaine) placed in five locations around the ankle to effect multiple nerves as they enter the foot.

Ankle nerve blocks are provided to relieve pain and stiffness associated with nerve damage, injuries and peripheral neuropathy in the feet.  Ankle nerve blocks help to eliminate pain, burning, tingling and other symptoms in the treated area allowing the therapeutic treatments sufficient time to heal the ankle/foot and restore normal nerve function.  Repeated use can help to condition the nerve response and reduce painful flare-ups.

What happens after an ankle nerve block?

One ankle nerve block is unlikely to provide any lasting benefit.  If our medical team feels that you are a good candidate for ankle nerve blocks, they will set you up on a schedule, which is typically 1-2 times per week for 4-8 weeks.  Most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure but always check with your medical provider before resuming normal activity.

What happens if I still have symptoms after completing the series?

Occasionally, we’ll have patients who do not respond to the ankle nerve blocks.  While this is rare, there are other treatments in our office that may help when the ankle nerve blocks do not, such as Neural Prolotherapy (NPT).

What are Botox Injections for Migraines, Neck Pain and Spasticity?

Mention the word “Botox” and most people think of its use in the world of aesthetics for beauty/wrinkle treatment; now, however, the medical community is utilizing the same science to treat pain. The active substance in Botox injections is botulism toxin A, which is created by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. C. botulinum is a common bacterium found in nauture in the soil. Doctors are now harnessing the power of the active ingredient of the outline toxin by administering shots to selected muscles that are responsible for pain or spasticity (spasm) to weaken these overactive muscles. The effect is to allow for greater range of motion in places like the neck or limbs, decrease pain and increase function. Botox injections are temporary in nature and work best when combined with other treatments, such as physical therapy. Some of the conditions that medical Botox can treat include chronic migraine headaches, spasticity (an exaggerated muscle tightness sometimes seen after stroke, spinal cord injury or brain injury that can lead to pain and contracture), and cervical dystonia (painful tightness of neck muscles leading to abnormal neck position, posture and affecting day to day activities).

What is the procedure for Botox Injections?

Botox injections only take a short amount of time. The amount of Botox injected per session and the number of treatments are based on the type and severity of the condition, but Botox injections should not be administered more frequently than ninety days from the previous injection. The botulinum toxin is combined with preservative-free sodium chloride (saline) to reconstitute the Botox in a liquid solution and provide a medium by which the medication can spread out to reach the target areas. Then the injection spots are carefully chosen by the doctor to avoid weakening the wrong muscles or causing any avoidable side effects.

Why choose Botox Injections?

Botox has been on the rise with over six million treatments a year for a number of conditions; more and more patients who suffer from chronic migraine headaches are finding it to be an easily tolerated, effective treatment that allows many of them to limit or get off of expensive medications that carry unwanted side effects. Only a small amount of Botox is typically needed for each treatment. Botox injections have proven to be helpful in aiding in treating various conditions where other techniques (e.g. massage, physical or occupational therapy, medications) may have failed. By using Botox injections under an experienced physician’s guidance, patients are better able to participate and get better results from physical therapy and exercise programs and are better able to live their every day lives without constant pain or dysfunction.

What is AmnioFix?

AmnioFix is a brand of placental graft matrix (PGM) used in regenerative medicine to help your body to regenerate soft tissue and heal damaged tissue. There have been over 500,000 allografts distributed for use in various types of surgery and wound care. Other forms of amniotic membrane have been used for almost 100 years. AmnioFix contains natural factors, called “growth factors,” for homogolous use to modulate inflammation, reduce scar tissue formation and enhance healing.

What are growth factors?

Growth factors are powerful agents that our bodies produce to signal cells to come to the target site, help the site to heal, and help your own cells regenerate the damaged tissue. AmnioFix contains some of the mmost important growth factors for healing.

Which growth factors are in AmnioFix?

There have been 226 different growth factors specialized cytokines and enzyme inhibitors identified in AmnioFix. Some of the most notable regulatory factors that help enhance healing are: Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-B), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), and Platelet Derived Growth Factor A & B (PDGF AA & BB).

Why AmnioFix?

The use of amniotic tissue has been documented in published literature since the early 1900’s. Amniotic membrane has been the subject of many scientific publications evaluating its use in modulation of inflammation, reduction of scar tissue formation and enhancing healing. All of the amniotic membrane tissue for AmnioFix is donated by healthy consenting mothers undergoing scheduled caesarean sections. The amniotic membrane is the cover that was surrounding the baby and is typically discarded after the baby is born. The recovery of the membrane does not affect the baby or the delivery process. Therefore, the donation process does not share the ethical concerns associated with embryonic tissue.

All tissue donors are tested similarly to testing done for donated blood. The amniotic membrane then undergoes a validated proprietary process to thoroughly cleanse and preserve the tissue, called the PURION process. The steps of the PURION process include: cleansing the tissue, drying the tissue and sterilization. AmnioFix allografts are procured and processed in the United States according to the standards and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United Stated Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Is AmnioFix Right for Me?

You and your provider may consider AmnioFix an option if:

  • You have been diagnosed with an injury resulting in inflammation.
  • Conservative treatments such as rest, physical therapy, chiropractic, steroid injections, NSAID medications and/or bracing have not provided lasting symptomatic relief.
  • You want a non-steroidal option or have reached your limit of steroids injections.

Before and After Treatment

Before treatment: You will be scheduled for an evaluation and likely some diagnostic imaging such as x-rays or MRI to determine if AmnioFix is the right treatment for your condition.

After treatment: The treatment site might appear red and be tender to the touch. The procedure might cause some soreness that may last for up to 2-3 days. If the area is painful or swollen, or if you have any questions about the response you are having, please call our office and ask to speak to a provider. You will be scheduled for a follow-up with your doctor 8 weeks following your AmnioFix treatment.

Rehab: Depending on your condition, your physician may prescribe some home rehabilitation or refer you to a physical therapist. To get the optimal results from your AmnioFix treatment, it is important that you follow your doctor’s post-treatment care instructions.
