Living with arthritis can keep you from the activities you love and can even interfere with everyday tasks. Many people living with arthritis are forced to use over the counter medications to help reduce pain; however, this simply masks the symptoms of arthritis instead of targeting the cause of the pain.

What Is The Best Injection For Knees?
This Osteopath Arthritis Program uses natural treatments to reduce inflammation that causes pain, allowing you to become more active and regain proper function. The natural treatment uses a three-part program to help encourage healing and reduce inflammation of the joints.
Covered by most insurance providers, including Medicare
This three-step program includes:
- Knee bracing - this opens the space between the knee and cartilage
- GenVisc 850 - This is injected into the opened space between knee and cartilage
- Injections containing natural growth factors to help smooth tissues
Amniotic Fluid Allograft
Amniotic Allografts are a tissue graft derived from the placenta. In the form of an injection, amniotic fluid allografts can speed up the healing process while also helping combat the inflammation caused by conditions such as Osteoarthritis. Injections containing the allografts can target localized tissue defects and inflammation providing arthritis pain relief.
Acellular Amniotic Fluid Allografts are safely harvested from healthy donors during pregnancy and are not stem cells from embryos.
Instead, the amniotic tissue is taken at the time a child is delivered without posing a risk to the mother or baby. The injections provide a steroid-free, natural anti-inflammatory treatment that contains vital growth factors in a very high concentration.
Interfyl offers an acellular amniotic fluid allograft treatment ready for injection. It contains fully screened tissues derived from donors in excellent health. The fluid is put through a low-protein binding filter and sterilized using gamma irradiation for complete patient safety. As a source of such a high concentration of growth factors, the treatment provides mechanical and anti-microbial protection with the ability to enhance lubrication. Growth factors play an important role in cellular growth stimulation as well as healing and cellular differentiation. This allows the injections to adapt to the targeted environment and promote healing.
Interfyl contains vital growth factors that aid in healing as well as reducing inflammation, including:
- Platelet-derived growth factors
- Epidermal growth factors
- Transforming growth factors
- Insulin-like growth factors
- Hepatocyte growth factors
- Fibroblast growth factors
Natural Relief For Osteoarthritis Pain
Amniotic fluid allografts use placental-derived tissues as a natural anti-inflammatory. Studies on amniotic suspension allograft (ASA) for the treatment of osteoarthritis were shown to be both safe and highly effective for decreased pain and improved function.
Some of the most notable findings include:
- In three months, only 13.2% of patients reported unacceptable pain compared to hyaluronic acid at 68.8% and saline at 75%. The amniotic suspension allograft patients also reported significant improvements for overall pain, Knee Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) pain, and KOOS-activities of daily living scores
- Greater improvement in KOOS symptom scores
The study suggests that ASA injection is effective in treating the nonoperative management of symptomatic knee osteopath arthritis and that injections provide a potentially superior anti-inflammatory treatment for those with the condition. Amniotic suspension allograft injections can help older patients delay or even avoid the need for knee replacement.
As you can see Acellular Amniotic Fluid Allografts provide an effective alternative to surgery, helping to reduce inflammation and relieve arthritis pain.
