We are dedicated to offering you state-of-the-art treatment options at OrthoSC to help you recover and restore your function and strength. As part of that dedication, fellowship-trained interventional pain management specialist Dr. Stephen Parker offers human amniotic fluid (AF) therapy using FlowerAmnioFlo™ injections as a nonsurgical solution to orthopedic injuries and conditions.

What Is AF Therapy?

AF therapy uses safe, healthy donor amniotic fluid injected into the site of injury or soft-tissue damage to promote tissue reconstruction. The natural growth factors in amniotic fluid, when injected by your doctor, can signal cells to help your body repair itself through regeneration. 

By working with your body’s healing processes, AF therapy helps rebuild damaged tissues naturally without surgical repair or artificial components. AF therapy also uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that aids in wound healing, to help your joints and tissues regain mobility.

Who Can Benefit From AF Therapy?

AF therapy can provide tissue repair and pain relief for a number of orthopedic injuries conditions, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sacroiliac joint injuries and inflammation
  • Joint pain and injuries, including hip, knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow, and ankle issues
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
