How Clarix Flo Brings Advanced Relief to Painful Injuries

by | Sep 19, 2019 | Regenerative Medicine

When you are a podiatrist—or any other form of medical professional—you are always learning about the best ways to bring patients the relief and comfort they need.

There will always be new concepts and new forms of treatment that can be applied to your patients’ conditions. The best doctors will consider these against and even alongside the forms of treatment that have won the test of time.

So when we incorporate a new method into our practice, you know it must be useful!

For patients who suffer with pain and mobility issues due to damaged soft tissues, we are proud to provide Clarix Flo therapy as an option for their care. This treatment can be especially effective for damaged soft tissues, and has been a dependable choice for world-class athletes and now, potentially, you!

What is Clarix Flo?

Clarix Flo is a form of regenerative medicine, meaning that it works with the body’s own healing processes to improve the effectiveness of natural recovery. In other words, the treatment only relies on what is provided by the human body and not lab-created drugs.

Regenerative medicine techniques such as Clarix Flo can be great options for relieving symptoms in patients without having to engage in more invasive procedures. Instead of surgery, for example, a series of injections may provide necessary healing and relief.

What is In Clarix Flo? Is it Safe?

A Clarix Flo injection contains amniotic materials acquired from amniotic membranes and umbilical cords. These materials are safely donated after the birth of a child, with no risks whatsoever to the newborn or mother.

These materials are often discarded, but can be used to benefit others instead. Their potential to become almost any type of cell make them a highly versatile tool.

These amniotic materials are “micronized”, which is basically a fancier term for “broken down into a size that can be injected.” Micronizing does not diminish the strength of the materials involved, which include various growth factors that encourage cells to grow and repair.

Since there are no factors such as steroids or inorganic chemicals at play, Clarix Flo is generally safe in the majority of cases. Of course, some risks may be present for certain patients and situations. Before undergoing any form of treatment, we will conduct a review to identify and determine any potential risks that may be involved.

What Might Clarix Flo Be Used For?

Clarix Flo can be an effective form of regenerative treatment for many conditions involving damage to soft tissues (in other words, most every part that isn’t a bone).

When it comes to the foot and ankle, there are plenty of soft tissues that can be troubled via injury or chronic conditions. A few common examples include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis. One of the most common causes of heel pain we see in patients, this condition involves small injuries to and inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the underside of the foot.
  • Achilles Tendinitis. Strain and inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Pain usually manifests in the back or just above the back of the heel.
  • Osteoarthritis and other joint damage. Damage to cartilage in joints, such as caused by years of mechanical wear and tear in the area, may benefit from regenerative therapy. Additional causes of joint pain that surround ligaments, such as sprains, may also see effective results.

As a treatment for sprains and other soft tissue sports injuries, it’s not difficult to see how Clarix Flo can be a superb choice for athletes.

Any treatment that avoids surgery can avoid potential weakening of the area because of that procedure. While the goal of any surgery is to produce results that are overall better than what is currently being experienced, it is an unavoidable fact that the site of a surgery is never going to be exactly the same as before the surgery and condition ever happened.

However, you do not have to be an athlete to benefit from Clarix Flo treatments! A great many causes and conditions—not just sports injuries—may be improved by this treatment. In some cases, this may mean accelerated recovery from an injury. In others, it might mean a chronic source of pain finally starts to significantly recover again.

On the other side of the coin, Clarix Flo is not going to be the first recommendation we make for every patient who has soft tissue damage. For some cases, it might not be an option we recommend at all.

Every patient has different individual needs, and every case has differing factors that color it. If we suggested the same exact treatment for every similar symptom that came through our doors, we would be letting many of our patients down by not providing the ideal treatment for them.

Remember: advanced treatment does not always mean the best. Our advice only comes after a thorough evaluation of your condition and the circumstances surrounding it.

That doesn’t mean you can’t ask us questions about Clarix Flo or other treatments if you have them, though! We’re happy to provide you all the information you need to continue forward with treatment in full confidence.
