Posterior Tibial Tendon Tear Stem Cell Injection

Posterior Tibial Tendon Tear Stem Cell Injection

Happy New Year! 2015 is upon us and every year we should be saying that this is going to be our best year, great things are going to happen!

One thing that can ruin a holiday is a painful injury. As a New York Regenerative Medicine specialist, one injury that many of my patients come in to non-surgically correct is a posterior tibial tendon tear. Using a stem cell injection or a PRP injection, as an alternative to foot surgery, we have found that a torn tendon can greatly be improved.

The posterior tibial tendon is located on the side of the inner ankle and ends on the inside of the midfoot. People who do high impact sports like tennis, basketball, and football can receive tears of this tendon from repetitive use. People over 40 are more prone to experience posterior tibial tendon problems because of hypertension and repetitive traumas.

Symptoms of a posterior tibial tendon tear include pain along the inside of the foot and ankle where the tendon lies, pain that becomes worse with activity. Sometimes one can actually see their arch get lower due to the stretching and injury of this tendon.

Both a posterior tibial tendon tear prp injection and a posterior tibial tendon tear stem cell injection have proven track records to accelerate the recovery of this injury. These procedures are non-surgical and low risk. They are done in-office. There are no hospital visits or overnight stays. If you want to avoid surgery, platelet rich plasma therapyand stem cell therapyare viable and safe options.
