Conventional treatment methods mostly focus on treating the injury by masking the symptoms temporarily. However, regenerative therapies not only resolve the symptoms of the injury but also treat the underlying cause.
Conventional treatments include NSAIDs, steroids, and invasive, painful surgeries with general anaesthesia. Complications such as re-rupturing of the tendon or nerve pain may arise even after surgery. Steroids and NSAIDs are commonly administered for reducing pain and inflammation. However, this treatment does not involve restoring damaged tissues. Hence, these methods provide only temporary relief. If used for a longer duration, they can lead to many side effects.
However, ankle tendon tear treatment by regenerative therapies enhance the repair mechanism of the damaged tissues, along with the reduction of pain and inflammation. Hence, these therapies are considered as a potential ankle tendon surgery alternative. With regenerative treatment, patients undergo a minimally invasive procedure with local anaesthesia and with natural healing process kick-started they can return to their regular routine lives faster without any risks, by avoiding the painful and lengthy process of surgery
