Amnion Recruitment Therapy
Covered by some Insurance
A product of advances in regenerative medicine, Amnion recruitment procedures have been utilized in many areas all across the globe for years now. Amnion is a naturally occurring fluid that is widely used to heal and reverse a variety of medical issues. Some of the most common conditions addressed via Amnion Recruitment are joint, ligament, tendon, and muscle damage and pain. Now the game-changing medical care option known as Amnion Recruitment is available here in the United States at select clinics such as Regenerative Complete.
Regenerative medicine is an outgrowth of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology. It offers the promise of restoring damaged tissue by promoting new growth.

Typically, patients are back to their normal activities in as little as twenty-four hours. Amnion recruitment is done using a combination of human amnion/chorion membrane and other naturally occurring cellular structures that contain multiple extracellular matrix proteins, growth factors, cytokines, and other specialty proteins. These are all very helpful for healing damaged joint and bone tissue safely and effectively.
Treating Pain and Discomfort with Regenerative Medicine

The most common side effects are temporary swelling and pain. While most Regenerative therapies for arthritis are considered safe, it does carry the same risks as any other medical procedure, such as a small risk of infection.” (Arthritis Health)
What Orthopedic Conditions Can Amnion Recruitment Help?
Acute or chronic orthopedic pain can be a major inconvenience. It can interfere with your mobility and reduce the amount of time you can spend standing, walking, moving, or just enjoying life.
Cartilage reduction to the knee joint
Rotator cuff tears and sprains
Injuries caused by dislocations
ACL or MCL tears due to injury
Meniscal tears and strains
Other degenerative conditions
Chronic joint pain
Sports related injuries
The most common treatments for these used to be invasive surgery and joint replacements. With surgery, you can spend months dealing with expensive and extensive rehabilitation before your body is able to regain mobility, strength, and to feel significant pain reduction. In many cases, it was found that the underlying cause of the pain was not fully addressed and other problems would likely arise down the road. The replacement surgery best case scenario was often months of painful recovery and possible reoccurring pain years down the road. Evidence suggests that surgery can have a lot of risks and possible complications involved. Knee replacement used to be the last resort option due to the high risk of failure and potentially devastating side effects. However, knee replacement surgery is one of the most common procedures done to relieve knee pain today. The same is true for many other orthopedic issues, with patients opting for surgery over less invasive—and potentially more successful—options such as Amnion Recruitment Therapy. Unfortunately, because the power of stem cells and the availability of Amnion Recruitment Therapy is not widely known among the general population, hundreds of thousands of patients continue to choose invasive surgery without ever knowing there is a better, safer, natural option available.
