Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are used as a non-surgical method to treat pain in torn tendons, muscles, ligaments, and arthritic pain in joints.

In the ankle, the most common injuries treated by PRP injections are non-healing tendon injuries such as Achilles Tendinitis, Arthritic conditions, Plantar Fasciitis, and painful injuries to the ankle joint.
The way that this healing is achieved is by the use of the patient’s own blood platelets injected into the site of injury. Blood taken from a patient is then spun down to separate the plasma from the red blood cells.  That plasma is then injected into the site of injury. 
The success of PRP therapy can vary depending on the healing potential of a patients plasma and the extent of their injury. However, studies in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery shows the use of
PRP shows significant improvement in pain, activity, and quality of life.
