AmnioFix injections uses the same amniotic membrane used to provide covering and a healing foundation for diabetic ulcers and other wounds. In this case, however, the membrane is reduced into an injectable form instead of covering an open area. An AmnioFix injection treatment into soft tissues is theorized to aid in internal healing as well. Conditions such as plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, and certain tendon injuries may see great benefits in recovery and reduction of pain. Clinical studies as to the effectiveness of the injections are ongoing, but promise is being shown.
