Are you struggling with pain from an old injury or other bodily aches? You might be thinking about visiting a doctor to ask about amniotic growth factor injections. This natural treatment can power up your body’s healing process and move you closer to a pain-free life. But what exactly are amniotic growth factor injections? How long do they take to work? Read on below to learn the answers.

What Are Amniotic Growth Factors?

Amniotic growth factors come from the lining of the amniotic sac, which surrounds a fetus during pregnancy. They are harvested voluntarily from mothers who deliver during C-section; the process is very safe for both the baby and the mom.

Amniotic fluid is rich in cells that promote growth and healing, including growth factors and stem cells. Once it is harvested, it can be processed to create a shelf-stable product, which doctors can use to treat patients who are suffering from various types of tissue damage.

For example, amniotic growth factor injections have been known to help patients who are suffering from osteoarthritis, slight tears in muscles and ligaments, neck pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, and other various aches.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

Local anesthesia may be used to make you comfortable during your injections. After the growth factors are precisely placed into your body, they will get to work right away. In fact, there may be a very fast reduction in inflammation.

However, it is also common for patients to notice some discomfort as the local anesthesia wears off. Some posttreatment soreness is normal because the injections are placed into the deep tissues of the body. Normally, this issue dissipates within 1 – 3 days after a treatment session.

You may start to notice a significant reduction in pain and an increase in strength in the treated area within a couple of weeks after your appointment. The results will continue to improve over time; many patients experience optimum results about 12 weeks after their injections. Depending on your unique situation, the treatment could provide you with years of pain-free function from the treated tissues.

Of course, it is important to keep in mind that each individual is unique. You may respond faster or slower to the treatment than other people, so it is important to be patient, trust the process, and talk to your doctor if you have questions or concerns.

Amniotic growth factor injections have the potential to help you thrive! A local regenerative medicine specialist can help you determine whether this treatment is right for you.
