Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets to help stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue. This cutting-edge therapeutic approach is just one of the advanced techniques offered at Annapolis Foot and Ankle Center.
Our podiatrist and foot surgeon has utilized platelet-rich plasma as part of treatment for such podiatric disorders as nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, bone repair and regeneration, diabetic foot care, neuropathy, and more.
Conditions Treated with PRPs
The PRP treatment is a sort of cocktail of many beneficial proteins that aid repair and regeneration in tissues such as tendons and bone. It involves cutting-edge technology with the bodyÃ¢s natural ability to heal.
Platelets have been found to release healing Ã¢growth factorsÃ¢ into the bloodstream. PRP proteins also work to reduce inflammation and ease pain.
