Are you struggling with chronic foot pain? If so, you know first hand how difficult it can make enjoying your everyday life. From engaging in your favorite sports activities to simply walking from the bedroom to the kitchen, chronic pain diminishes your quality of life.
People struggle with chronic foot pain for many reasons. At New Canaan Podiatry in New Canaan, Connecticut, we often treat patients suffering from foot pain due to damage or inflammation from problems related to:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic foot pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Previous injuries
In years past, treatments for chronic pain were limited to cortisone injections and pain medications. Thanks to advancements in regenerative medicine, board-certified podiatrist Jennifer Tauber, DPM, and our team can now treat chronic pain by helping heal the underlying condition with amazing AmnioFix® injections!

What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a dynamic and cutting-edge approach to medical care, especially for conditions related to tissue inflammation or degeneration. Unlike traditional treatment methodologies that focus on muting the symptoms of your condition, regenerative medicine triggers your body’s natural healing processes.
This means that as you receive regenerative medicine treatments, you not only experience a decrease in troublesome symptoms, like chronic pain, but the underlying condition that causes your symptoms begins to heal. With regenerative medicine, your body is encouraged to grow new and healthy cells in the damaged areas, helping you stay pain-free longer!
One of the most promising regenerative treatments includes versatile AmnioFix injections. This innovative treatment uses 226 different growth factors to promote healing and reduce your chronic pain!
How does AmnioFix treat chronic pain?
The powerful growth factors in AmnioFix come from the lining of donated placental and amniotic sac tissues, which contain amazing healing abilities, including:
- Attracting stem cells to damaged areas to repair the body
- Stimulating the flow of oxygen and other nutrients to injured regions
- Increasing and triggering the growth of connective tissues
This amazing treatment is available in an injectable form to treat a variety of painful foot conditions by reducing inflammation, decreasing the formation of scar tissue, and enhancing the healing of soft tissue tears and injuries. In many cases, AmnioFix helps patients avoid foot surgery and recover faster from injuries and problematic foot conditions.
What can I expect from an AmnioFix treatment?
Before beginning any regenerative treatment, Dr. Tauber first verifies your foot pain hasn’t responded to more conservative treatments like rest, ice and heat therapy, and bracing. If Dr. Tauber determines your condition may respond to AmnioFix therapy, you can expect to undergo this quick therapy on-site at New Canaan Podiatry during an office visit.
After your AmnioFix treatment, you may have tenderness or redness at the injection site. This response is normal and typically fades after two to three days. Ice and elevation can help you overcome these mild side effects more quickly.
Dr. Tauber may recommend some rehabilitative exercise or therapies along with your AmnioFix injections. Regardless, you can expect an improvement in your pain and increased function within a week of treatment. As your tissues heal and regenerate, results continue to improve over the next several weeks.
