HOW IS THE INJECTION PERFORMED?
After numbing your foot, the doctor uses a small needle to deliver the powdered umbilical cord mixed with saline into the desired area.
When the numbness wears off, you may continue to feel some pain for 24-48 hours as the injection diffuses and begins to work. The doctor may advise you on several ways to easily manage this mild pain, including immobilization.
Following the injection, we recommend to avoid high-impact activities for at least 1-2 weeks, or as directed by the doctor.
HOW SOON WILL I FEEL BENEFIT?
CLARIX® FLO works both to control the discomfort from inflammation and help support the regenerative healing process. Patients report pain relief in a few days, and an improvement in function over several weeks.
While the initial injection may relieve much of your pain, the doctor may suggest another injection after six to eight weeks to help boost the regenerative process.
IS CLARIX® FLO SAFE?
Yes. CLARIX® FLO is made of umbilical cord and amniotic tissue that is freeze-dried and ground into particles, making it safe for transplantation.
Placental tissue is obtained through a voluntary donation program across the country. Donor mothers provide full consent prior to delivery of a full-term, live, newborn baby via a scheduled Cesarean section. Prior to donation, all mothers are carefully screened to ensure safety, and the tissue is thoroughly cleaned and processed to maintain the tissue’s regenerative properties according to the requirements established by the Foot & Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB). The donated tissue is thoroughly screened for infectious disease, including HIV, Hepatitis B & C, Syphilis, West Nile, among many others. CLARIX® FLO is fully sterilized prior to shipping.
To date, after more than 500,000 procedures, there have been no reports of disease transmission or tissue rejection from amniotic tissue products produced by Amniox Medical or its family of companies.
