Recovering From Ankle Injury: A Guide to Stem Cell Treatment

An injury to your ankle can be both painful and frustrating. The ankle is one of the most complicated joints in the human body, with several bones and ligaments in the area. It’s also one of the most important in terms of being fully mobile, so an injury to your ankle can keep you inactive to a far greater extent than suits your lifestyle.

The most common types of ankle injury are:

  1. Fractures: May occur if one of the bones in your ankle is broken or fractured through a heavy impact.
  2. Sprains: Can be caused by stretching one of the ligaments attached to your ankle bones.
  3. Tendonitis: Overuse of the ankle, through excessive exercise or physical work for instance, can cause the tendons in the area to become inflamed.

Traditional treatments depend on the nature of the injury. You may not need a plaster cast for a fracture, for example. A sprain may require a boot and recovery takes time. In addition, ice can help with tendonitis.

However, stem cell therapy for ankle injuries has the potential to bring about an improvement in your condition and speed up your recovery in all these instances. It may also be an option if more conventional treatments are not delivering the return to full mobility that you need.

How Stem Cell Therapy for Ankle Injuries Works

Whatever led to the ankle injury, stem cells can support recovery, reduce inflammation, and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, which means they have yet to be allocated a specific purpose in the human body. At the Stemwell Clinic, we use umbilical cord stem cells harvested from healthy volunteer donors. We can then deploy stem cell therapy for ankle injury, either using a targeted injection into the affected area or intravenously.

Once in your body, the stem cells support the body’s development of healthy tissue. They support the development of bone, tendon, ligament, or cartilage. In the process, stem cells also deliver the benefit of lessening inflammation and pain.

This means you may experience a faster recovery from your ankle injury and return to full mobility quicker than via conventional treatments. Stem cells’ regenerative benefits make it a compelling course of action for people with a range of ankle injuries.
