PRP THERAPY is a clinic based, non-surgical procedure that involves taking a patient’s blood and using a centrifuge to isolate and concentrate a platelet rich solution. It stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is commonly used by doctors and surgeons to treat foot and ankle injuries. The platelets are the cells in our body that contain nutrients and growth factors, which stimulate the normal wound healing process, e.g. the same way that your skin heals after a scrape.
With PRP therapy, we extract a very high concentration of platelets from your own blood ,this concentrated PRP is rich in a patient’s own natural healing and grown factors. It is then injected back into the injured tissue to help accelerate healing, reduce pain and increase functionality. PRP therapy is used by many patients to avoid expensive and painful foot and ankle surgeries.
BENEFIT OF PRP THERAPY and TREATMENT
PRP injections harness the healing power of your own blood to reduce joint pain caused by inflammation. It may actually repair your damaged joint lining, as well as slowing down further wear and tear of your cartilage. The PRP injection contains valuable proteins and growth factors that your body may use to begin repairing cells and tissue.
PRP therapy has several benefits:
- It’s low risk — no more dangerous than a collagen injection.
- It supports long-term healing of your injury, rather than quick, temporary relief from your symptoms.
- For some, it can be a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
- It uses your own plasma to help stimulate and accelerate your body’s natural healing process.
In an effort to treat athletes with complete ruptures of the Achilles tendon, activated PRP was injected into the tendons during a surgical procedure32. Six athletes treated with PRP took significantly less time to improve their range of motion in the ankle, resume gentle running, and begin training activities when compared to control athletes who had conventional surgical treatment. This was the first study to report on the efficacy of PRP in the treatment of injured tendons.
