Family Foot & Ankle Centers is committed to offering non-surgical approaches to treatment for foot and ankle pain through the use of regenerative medicine in their Waxahachie, Ennis, and Corsicana offices. We are proud to be experienced foot doctor providers of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment – an advanced therapy used to accelerate your natural healing process.
What Is PRP?
Blood is mostly made of a liquid called plasma, but it also contains small solid components – red cells, white cells, and platelets. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets can be 5 to 10 times greater than usual.
Platelets are best known for helping form clots to stop bleeding. However, platelets also contain proteins called growth factors that can assist with the healing of injuries.
This podiatrist directed in-office treatment is another excellent alternative to foot surgery for a few specific foot and ankle conditions. PRP treatments involve infusing the patient’s body with platelet-rich plasma that supports and augments the body’s own natural healing abilities.
For some conditions such as heel pain, PRP can be used in conjunction with Shockwave Therapy. PRP therapy is very popular with professional athletes, including Tiger Woods, who used PRP to treat his long lasting Achilles tendonitis.
