Ankle Recovery Redefined: Regenexx's Innovative Approach

Featured Image

Stepping into Healing

The ankle, a critical component in our movement mechanics, bears the brunt of our body weight with each step. This complex joint, formed by the tibia, fibula, and talus, is stabilized by numerous tendons and ligaments. However, when these structures are overstretched due to twisting or turning, inflammation and tears can occur, leading to sprains or strains. Traditional treatments like rest, ice, compression, and elevation are effective; however, advanced treatment options by Regenexx can expedite recovery using the body's natural healing properties.

Bone Marrow Concentrate Therapy by Regenexx

At Ospina Medical, we are pleased to offer a cutting-edge procedure that harnesses the healing abilities of bone marrow concentrate  rich in stem cells. These versatile cells, capable of developing into any cell type, play a key role in the restoration of damaged tissues. 

The procedure begins with extracting a patient's bone marrow from their pelvic bone. This sample then undergoes in-house laboratory processing to produce a concentrated serum. This serum of therapeutic cells is then injected into target regions of the patient's musculoskeletal system. This minimally invasive procedure, typically completed in the office under light sedation, is optimized for patient comfort and healing. The combination of our proprietary processing steps and Dr. Kohler's tailored series of injections encourages the healing of your body, by your body. 

Advanced Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment

Another progressive treatment option for ankle injuries is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. This process concentrates platelets from the patient's blood, harnessing their growth factors to stimulate tissue repair. Unlike standard PRP treatments, Regenexx employs a sophisticated lab-based technique to produce a purer, highly concentrated platelet solution. Through Dr. Kohler's precise delivery of the serum to the injury sites, this "Super Concentrated Platelet" (SCP) therapy offers a potent dose of regenerative factors, promoting effective and timely recovery. 

Combining Treatments for Enhanced Healing

Patients at Ospina Medical can benefit from the synergistic effects of both treatments when they opt for bone marrow concentrate therapy. This is because Dr. Kohler ensures blood and bone marrow samples are obtained before laboratory processing, so the healing factors from each can be employed. The bone marrow concentrate introduces stem cells directly to the sites of injury, while subsequent PRP by regex injections  further stimulate the healing process. This combination can significantly accelerate healing and demonstrates Dr. Kohler's commitment to optimizing your care.
