Conditions That Can Be Treated With PRP

doctor injecting plasma into injured foot | Annapolis PodiatristMany types of injuries can benefit from a platelet-rich plasma infusion. We often use the therapy to treat the following:

  • Sprains
  • Joint injury
  • Muscle injury
  • Tendonitis 
  • Torn ligaments or tendons
  • Cartilage degeneration

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 body's natural ability to heal. Platelets have been found to release healing growth factors into the bloodstream. PRP proteins also work to reduce inflammation and ease pain.
