What is PRP therapy?

Platelet rich plasma therapy is a relatively new alternative treatment option that serves a broad spectrum of foot conditions and injuries. Traditionally, foot injuries or ailments required extensive surgery or highly invasive treatments in order to fully restore function to the patient’s foot. However, inflammation, torn ligaments or hyper-extended joints in the foot and ankle can now be be treated with platelet rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP treatment.

PRP treatment is one of the best modern treatments in regenerative medicine. It is our goal to utilize the power of a patient’s own body to help heal itself. Platelet rich plasma therapy recently gained worldwide recognition when professional athletes started receiving PRP treatment for specific chronic foot injuries that were capable of allowing them to return to competition much more quickly than surgery could ever achieve. Most media and news outlets have reported PRP treatment with the likes of Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriquez.

How does PRP treatment work?

It may sound too good to be true, but the body is capable of healing a foot injury in a short amount of time. Our bodies have a brief time period that allows itself to heal chronic fascia, ligament, tendon, bone and cartilage injuries. Utilizing the essential healing cells that are already found in your blood, our specialist can manipulate these cells to assist the healing stage after an injury.

Platelet rich plasma therapy usually takes less than an hour to complete, which begins when your foot doctor withdraws healthy blood in a sterile tube the same way that occurs when you donate blood or give blood at your doctor’s office for blood tests. The harvested blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine and spun to separate the platelets from the red and white blood cells. Once separated, the platelet rich blood has almost 10 times richer concentration of growth promoting platelet cells to stimulate tissue recovery. Once the injection is complete the growth factors that the platelets secrete stimulate tissue recovery by increasing collagen production, enhance stem cell proliferation and protein production to facilitate the process of regeneration and remodeling of the injured or damaged site.
