Clarix FLO® FAQs

How is the Clarix FLO injection performed?

Clarix FLO® BottleAfter numbing, your doctor will insert a small needle into the affected area injecting a small amount of powdered umbilical cord reconstituted in saline into the area. When the numbness wears off, you may continue to feel some pain for a few days as the injection is absorbed into the injured tissue and begins to work. Your doctor may advise you on several ways to easily manage this mild discomfort. Following the injection, avoid high impact activities for at least a week as directed by your doctor.

How soon will I feel the benefit of Clarix FLO?

C-flo works to control pain 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, your doctor may suggest another injection after six to eight weeks in order to boost the regenerative process to maximize the outcome.

Is Clarix FLO safe?

Yes. Clarix FLO is made of amniotic tissue and umbilical cord that is freeze dried and ground into particles, making it safe for transplantation. The tissue is obtained from consenting mothers who donate birth tissue from live, full-term births across the US. It is then screened, handled, and processed based upon the requirements established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

To date, more than 250,000 procedures have been performed with this technology and no reports of tissue rejection or disease transmission have occurred. Clarix FLO has an extensive clinical history demonstrating safe and effective outcomes across many applications.
