About Ankle Discomfort

The ankle joint is a hinge joint that enables the foot to move in two primary directions: raising the foot up and pointing the foot down. The joint is supported by ligaments, tendons and muscles that provide stability and facilitate movement. The ankle joint plays a crucial role in activities such as walking, running and jumping as it enables the transfer of forces between leg and foot.

Most patients try the following treatments for ankle discomfort and typically experience temporary, but not lasting, results.

These treatments serve as coping strategies to deal with the pain, but do little to nothing to reverse the underlying causes of the discomfort.


NexGenEsis Care for Ankle Discomfort

Care for ankle discomfort begins with a thorough office examination. We use a hands-on approach to understand the nature and location of your ankle discomfort. If needed, we review imaging of the affected area.
A typical care plan begins with an injection of a protein derived from your blood plasma. The injection reduces inflammation in the joint and slows tissue degeneration.
Over the next six weeks you receive several laser and acoustic compression therapies on the joint to stimulate blood vessel formation and tissue rejuvenation. Additionally, you receive an injection of your own stem cells collected from your bone marrow to encourage the rejuvenation of healthy tissue.
At your six month check up you receive another injection of platelet-rich plasma, drawn from your blood, to increase healthy proteins in the affected area that encourage cell and tissue growth. The entire process puts your ankle in the best position possible to repair itself.
