Platelet Rich Plasma for Foot and Ankle Pain Relief
PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma is a form of Regenerative Medicine that has been used at Healthy Feet Podiatry for over 8 years. PRP treatments are used for healing of ligaments, tendons and joints of the foot, ankle and knee. In addition, wound healing can be accelerated with this treatment as well.
This specialized technique is safe because it uses your own blood cells and growth factors to heal your own body. Blood is safely drawn and a specialized process is used to prepare the platelet cells so that they are concentrated and vital without damage. This is a delicate process that is important for the best outcomes.
Platelets are blood cells that contain 800 different healing proteins and growth factors that support natural repair of your joints, ligaments and tendons by attracting your own body’s stem cells. Within the first hour after treatment, large amounts of these healing molecules are released and studies have shown that they continue to release for up to 7 days to help repair your foot, ankle and knee. All of these growth factors send signals to the body to activate the healing by attracting new strong tendon, ligament and cartilage cells leading to natural regeneration of your damaged tissues. In addition, these cells have strong anti-inflammatory effects.
Numerous studies have shown significant improvement in the repair of these tissues and true healing of the areas that cause pain and disability.
At Healthy Feet Podiatry, we are able to produce Platelet-Rich Plasma in the office and perform regenerative treatments in less than an hour with excellent results for you.
