What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine treatment that uses your own blood platelets to promote healing. Platelets are a type of blood cell that contains growth factors, which are proteins that help to repair damaged tissue.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
During a PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood very quickly. This process separates the platelets from the red blood cells. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the injured area of your foot or ankle.
What Conditions Can PRP Therapy Treat?
PRP therapy can be used to treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions, including:
What to Expect During PRP Therapy:
PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in our office and in-home for some cases. During the treatment, you may feel some discomfort when the needle is inserted, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.
After the PRP injection, you may experience some soreness and swelling in the treatment area. This is normal and should subside within a few days. We may recommend that you rest your foot/ ankle for a few days after the treatment and avoid strenuous activity.
