Plasma PRP injections
This technique was invented few years ago to treat tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone injuries, as well as arthritis, tendon and ligament injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon and ankle ligament injuries as an alternative to steroidal injection and surgery. A small amount of a patient’s blood is drawn and then spun at high speed. The platelets are concentrated 1000 times to increase the body healing abilities 10-100 folds .This liquid is then injected around or near the area of injury being treated usually under ultrasound guidance. The PRP at this stage contains three to five times the concentration of growth factors compared to normal human blood and by that it stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities.
