Are you one of the many Americans living with chronic foot, heel, or ankle pain? If so, you know just how difficult it is to make daily activities work. Tasks like playing your favorite sport and walking from the bedroom to the bathroom can be miserable. There is no doubt that chronic ankle pain diminishes your quality of life.
Pain in the ankle can result from several injuries and conditions. Some of the most common injuries that cause ankle pain include:
Ankle Sprains & Twisted Ankles
Sprained ankles, a common cause of ankle pain, happen when ligaments tear or stretch. Sprained or twisted ankles happen when the ankle rolls forcefully out of its normal position. Most sprained ankles involve injuries to the ligaments on the outer-side of the ankle.
Fluid-filled sacs called bursae cushion your bones when they move. Ankle Bursitis occurs when these sacs become irritated and inflamed. This can happen under stresses from movement or from an impact injury or even pressure.
Broken Ankles & Ankle Fractures
An accident or injury can cause bones to break (fracture). Ankle fractures range from mild to severe. Broken ankles can involve bones in any part of the ankle joint. A broken ankle causes ankle swelling and pain.
Tendons connect muscles to bones. Irritated, inflamed tendons are a soft-tissue injury called tendonitis. A tendon may tear, causing an Achilles tendon rupture.
Pain and stiffness in the ankle joint can result from ankle arthritis. Arthritis happens when cartilage tissue in joints that cushions bones breaks down. The breakdown causes bones to rub together. Injuries and overuse can lead to arthritis. Several types of arthritis can affect the ankles.
A very low arch or no arch at all may cause pain, inflammation, & swelling in the ankles and feet. At times, children’s & kids’ feet arches do not develop normally as they grow, resulting in the flatfoot condition.
A type of arthritis, gout results from a buildup of uric acid throughout the body. Typically, uric acid leaves the body in urine. Excess uric acid creates crystals that settle in the joints. Gout in the ankle can be very painful.
Several types of infection, including cellulitis, may cause swelling and pain in the ankle joint. A bone infection called osteomyelitis can result from a staph infection.

Regenerate the Damaged Tissue
When tissue in and around the ankle is damaged, it can begin to grow and further the damage. Though surgery and other treatment options improve the condition, there is nothing like allowing your body to naturally heal. AmnioFix injections trigger the body to send more healthy cells to the injured area and begin to regenerate healthy tissue.
Reduce Scar Tissue Formation
Scar tissue is fibrous tissue that forms when healthy tissue is destroyed by injury. It is dangerous for the body to form scar tissue as it can put pressure on nerves and reduce blood supply leading to more complications. AmnioFix helps reduce the amount of scar tissue that forms by producing normal healthy tissue.
Control Inflammation & Swelling
There is nothing more severe than inflamed ankles that won’t go away. Not only is it extremely painful, but it is also very unflattering. AmnioFix injections ensure that your ankles do not become inflamed and remain healthy throughout every activity that you engage in.
Enhance the Healing Process
This is an essential benefit of AmnioFix injections, and it is their primary purpose. When your ankle is injured, AmnioFix begins to heal the process efficiently and effectively. With these injections, you will avoid the pain of surgical treatment and the long recovery times that come with it.
