PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is a concentration of platelet cells from your blood with growth factors. This helps the healing process of chronic problems or injuries. These bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing and promote development of new blood vessels.
How does PRP work and what can be treated?
First, the area to be injected is numbed so the injection doesn't hurt. Once the plasma platelets are obtained and injected into the chronic painful area this increases the platelets and growth factors 500%. It can be used for chronic foot pain such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
