Amnion Injections Questions and Answers

What is an amnion Injection?

An amnion injection uses various growth factors, cytokines, which are naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, and hyaluronic acid to produce a protective healing environment that reduces inflammation, lubricates joints and cartilage, and stimulates tissue growth. Growth factors help with various illnesses and injuries by stimulating cell proliferation and wound healing. With the help of such growth factors, amnion injections have proven to reduce inflammation, improve pain, restore range of motion, and regulate the formation of scar tissue.
