Joint Injetions

Why am I experiencing joint pain?

If you’re suffering from joint pain, you’re not alone. A national survey found that one-third of Americans have experienced joint pain in the last 30 days. And part of the reason joint pain is common is that a number of issues can cause it.

Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:

  • Injuries, including tendon and ligament strains and sprains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Bursitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Fortunately, whether you’re suffering from knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow, ankle, hip, or other joint pain, Right Path Family Practice is here to help. They perform thorough exams, using the necessary imaging technology, to diagnose the root of your joint pain. They then tailor a treatment to you and your specific issue.

In addition to comprehensive rehab, Right Path Family Practice offers a number of surgery-free treatment options designed to bring you relief. They offer:

  • Steroid injections
  • Trigger point injections
  • Synvisc-One® injections for osteoarthritis in the knees
  • AmnioFix

What are AmnioFix joint injections?

AmnioFix is an injection that triggers healing and regeneration at your joint, using naturally derived healing agents to relieve your pain.

AmnioFix is a placental tissue allograft of the amniotic membrane. This amniotic membrane is gathered during scheduled C-sections. The mother volunteers to donate it and harvesting the membrane doesn’t harm the mother or baby. The amniotic membrane is then thoroughly screened for infectious microorganisms.

Once cleared, it is available for joint injections. The membrane injection into your joint kick starts your healing process and minimizes your joint pain.

How does AmnioFix work?

Each AmnioFix injection contains over 250 growth factors, regulatory proteins, targeted cytokines, and enzyme inhibitors. That’s a long way of saying the injection is packed full of ingredients known to trigger your body’s natural healing process and enhance it along the way.

Not only does it deliver healing agents, but AmnioFix also attracts your body’s own stem cells to the area, further supporting your healing process. As it works, it minimizes inflammation and scar tissue, relieving your current pain and shrinking your risks of complications down the road.

In short, AmnioFix is a naturally derived, surgery-free treatment for joint pain. If you want to restore your mobility and your quality of life without an invasive procedure, Right Path Family Practice offers this innovative joint injection to you.
