What is PRP?

Platelet-rich-plasma is an autologous, biological, blood derived product, which one can exogenously apply to a variety of tissues.  The PRP releases high concentrations of platlet-derived growth factors that enhance wound, bone, and tendon healing. Growth factors release when the platlets become activated, subsequently initiating the body's natural healing reponse.  Platlet-rich therapy is safe and the technique does not impair the biomechanical function of the foot.

The doctors at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists utilize PRP injections as a second line treatment of more chronic and thickened fascial, ligamentous and tendon conditions.
