Amniotic Growth Factors—The Basics
Amniotic growth factors come from the innermost lining of the amniotic sac. It is donated by mothers who deliver by c-section, and it involves a quick and painless process that doesn’t affect them or the baby in the slightest
Because this substance comes in direct contact with the growing baby, it is extremely rich in a wide variety of growth factors and precursor cells (like stem cells). It plays a large part in the relatively fast growth of the child, and this quality can be harnessed to help people heal.
After the growth factors have been harvested, they are processed and placed into a container to create a shelf-stable product. That way, when you come for an appointment, your doctor can just grab it and apply the treatment in relatively little time (an hour or less).
How Amniotic Growth Factors Heal the Body
In amniotic growth factors, you’ll find what your body already uses to heal and grow new, healthy tissue. When injected into an injured area, this creates a concentrated and accelerated healing response, enabling the distressed tissue to rapidly regenerate much faster than normal.
Basically, it’s like giving your body “premium fuel” to heal. And, because it comes from people, it causes virtually no side effects.
The growth factors will be injected into the body using ultrasound guidance, and then it will take about two to three weeks for the patient to start experiencing results. Typically, they include a drastic reduction of inflammation, an abatement of pain, more strength, and better stability. The results will continue to get better as time goes by, and they can be trusted to last for several months to a year before any type of follow-up is necessary.

Amniotic Growth Factors FAQs
Amniotic growth factors can play a significant role in helping your body to feel better and function optimally. Before you schedule a consultation with our team, however, you may want to learn more about the details of this treatment. To help you out, we have compiled the following list of FAQs, along with succinct answers. If you do not see the answers to your specific questions, give us a call so we can personally assist you.
Are the Injections Painful?
We use a local anesthetic to make the injections as comfortable as possible. Typically, the anesthetic begins to wear off after a few hours, which is when you may begin to experience some soreness and discomfort. After all, the amniotic growth factors were injected into the deep tissues of your body! Usually, any pain associated with treatment begins to wear off after 24 – 72 hours. In the meantime, you should try to take it easy. You can also take Tylenol (or any generic form of acetaminophen) to cope with your discomfort.
Do I Have to Do Anything Special to Prepare for My Treatment?
Preparing for amniotic growth factor injections is fairly simple. One thing you should do is stop taking anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, about 7 days prior to your treatment. This is recommended because inflammation is part of your body’s healing response, and fighting inflammation might interfere with the efficacy of your injections.
Additionally, it would be wise to choose a loose, comfortable outfit to wear to your appointment. Drinking water beforehand is also recommended so you are well-hydrated during your treatment.
Does Insurance Cover Amniotic Growth Factor Injections?
Medical policies can vary greatly in what they cover. You will need to look at the details of your specific policy to learn how it applies to this particular form of regenerative medicine. Generally speaking, insurance consider this therapy to be investigational. In other words, it is promising, but it has not yet been widely accepted as an effective treatment (even though we see consistently successful results). Therefore, it may not be covered. Our insurance-friendly team will be pleased to help you navigate your policy and understand your payment options.
Are There Any Risks Associated with Amniotic Growth Factor Injections?
This is a very low-risk treatment. In fact, there is almost no chance that your body will reject the growth factor solution. Adverse effects are extremely rare. The most common side effect is achiness and pain around the injection site, which are to be expected as your body works to heal itself.
Is Amniotic Growth Factor Therapy the Same as Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy?
Different practices may have slightly different titles for similar treatments. We cannot say if the amniotic growth factor therapy that we offer is exactly the same as the amniotic stem cell therapy that you might be able to get elsewhere. We encourage you to ask lots of questions before any treatment. You should also ensure that any medical professional you receive treatment from is adequately qualified to provide a particular service.
