In recent years, advances in healthcare research have led to new treatments that utilise the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Known as regenerative therapies, these are increasingly used in treating conditions that are not responsive to traditional care techniques.
These therapies have an anti-inflammatory affect, provide pain relief and encourage healing in damaged tissues. Compared with other methods such as cortisone injections and oral anti-inflammatories, these treatments have been shown to be safer and more effective in treating numerous podiatric conditions involving damaged tissue.
Conditions that can respond well to regenerative therapies include:
These therapies can also speed up healing after surgery.
Depending on the patient’s individual needs and condition, they are often combined with other podiatric treatments or biomechanical supports such as paddings, tapings, orthotics and footwear adjustments.
Cheltenham Podiatry’s in-house regenerative therapy clinic offers a number of cutting-edge, drug free treatments. Head podiatrist Jacqueline Kan is proud to be the first podiatrist in Melbourne to offer some of these therapies, such as platelet rich plasma.
All therapies are carried out by highly trained and qualified practitioners. A continually growing body of evidence supports the efficacy and safety of these treatments.
