Sometimes after suffering an injury to a tendon or a joint, your body’s effort was just not enough to completely heal the injury. This is where Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy comes in and saves the day!
Never heard of PRP? Basically, PRP is a therapy that promotes self-healing by utilizing your own blood platelets.
How does it work?
- Your podiatrist will draw a small amount of blood and place it in a centrifuge to separate the components
- Once the blood is spun down, the platelet rich plasma is then injected into the site of injury.
- Some people need only one injection to promote healing. The process all depends on the body’s acceptance of the treatment and the severity of the injury.
