How is regenerative medicine a breakthrough for foot and ankle pain sufferers?
The feet and ankles are the foundation of which our entire body relies on. We are generally on our feet a good part of the day. Therefore, the way we move on our feet or the “gait cycle” is particularly important to know, and understand, to diagnose how feet and ankle pain occur. Overpronation (the over-rolling of our feet when we walk) can lead to loss of arches and joint dysfunction. This can lead to feet and ankle pain. Other gait abnormalities may also lead to feet and ankle pain. Old injuries to the feet and ankles and muscle imbalance are a common cause of joint dysfunction leading to inflammation, pain, and degeneration. Improper shoe and arch support can also cause foot/ankle joint dysfunction leading to inflammation and pain.
(1) The use of regenerative medicine has helped many patients, in decreasing the symptoms of foot and ankle pain.
(2) Chiropractic doctors are experts in correcting dysfunctional joints that are commonly a cause of foot and ankle pain in many patients.
(3) Physical rehabilitation therapy helps to resolve the muscle weakness and tightness, which can be a cause of joint dysfunction in patients suffering from foot and ankle pain.
(4) Orthotic or arch supports can help support the arches and help remind the patient to complete the gait cycle properly.
Regenerative medicine is the most exciting branch of medicine that holds the hope for many foot and ankle pain sufferers. Current research suggests that HCTP and PRP can help decrease inflammation and increase regeneration of tissue. HCTP and PRP are both naturally occurring and have no known side-effects. Foot and ankle pain can be quite debilitating. It is the hope of researchers that regenerative medicine can help speed up the healing process.
The cause of foot and ankle pain is commonly due to joint dysfunction (the joint moves too little or too much) leading to inflammation and pain. Chiropractic doctors are the experts in correcting foot and ankle joint dysfunction. Correcting the foot and ankle joint dysfunction results in decreased inflammation, relief of pain, and return to life’s activities.
Muscle imbalance is a common cause of joint dysfunction leading to inflammation and foot/ankle pain. If not corrected immediately, it may result in chronic pain and disability. Physical rehabilitation therapy can help to strengthen the weak musculature and stretch the tight musculature correcting the muscle imbalance.
Foot and ankle pain sufferers can become dependent on taking pain relief medications to get through their daily lives. These pain medications have many side-effects that can create more health problems. Regenerative medicine is natural and appears to be a more effective approach to not only pain relief, but to reduce inflammation, and regenerate healthier tissues without the dangerous side-effects of pain medications. If you are tired of depending on prescription drugs and foot and ankle pain prevents you from fully enjoying your life, regenerative medicine treatments may be the right solution for you.
