For some patients, foot pain treatment at Foot Surgery Specialists of Texas can involve a minimally invasive technique called platelet-rich plasma therapy. This is a minimally invasive technique that uses the healing elements of the patient’s own blood to relieve foot pain and expedite recovery from injuries to cartilages, ligaments, tendons, and even bones.
During this process, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and specially prepared then re-injected into the injured area to stimulate healing of connective tissue. This procedure takes under an hour, including preparation and recovery time, and leaves no scarring. The goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing and reduce the need for surgery by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition becomes irreversible.
