Foot & Ankle PRP Therapy
PRP uses your body’s own plasma, which has more concentrated platelets than what’s normally found in blood. The process involves taking a small amount of your blood, placing it in a centrifuge, and then spinning it at high speeds until it becomes highly concentrated. After about 15 minutes, the mixture is then injected back into the area of your injury.
Since PRP comes from your own blood, your body is less likely to have a negative reaction to the treatment. The process is easy and relatively painless, we'll apply a local anesthetic if needed. Ultrasound guidance is used for position and precision of the needle during the injection. Regenerative therapy helps alleviate pain and boost healing using regenerative properties (cells, platelets, plasma, etc.) from the body. Regenerative medicine at Arizona Foot & Ankle Surgery includes the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help patients find relief from their chronic musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, ligament and muscle tears, wounds or tissue inflammation. PRP is helpful for the treatment of: Plantar Fasciitis, Tendinitis, Arthritis, Neurological Conditions, Sprains, Chronic Pain, Tissue inflammation, Wounds and more...
