Ankle and foot injuries are known very well by athletes, but they are not the only people who suffer from ankle or foot injuries. Still, when these types of injuries occur, a person’s mobility and ankle functionality will decrease substantially. Ankles and feet are highly susceptible to sprains, strains, and fractures. At Bay Area Stem Cell Therapy in San Ramon, our Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy has helped many people recover from ankle and foot injuries. PRP is extremely useful when improving tendon and ligament injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon injuries, and ankle ligament injuries.
Ankle and foot pain can develop from a list of conditions and injuries. Typical treatments for ankle injuries include surgeries and ankle fusion or replacement to remove damaged cartilage and replace lost cartilage near the ankle bones. Either way, all of these procedures can be very painful, and the recovery process may not produce the intended results. At Bay Area Stem Cell Therapy in San Ramon, our Stem Cell Therapy offers our patients an alternative to ankle surgeries and replacements. By concentrating stem cells before they can become “specialized cells” in the body, we reintroduce them into the affected area of the foot or ankle to promote an increased form of natural healing.
The doctors at Bay Area Stem Cell Therapy understand all too well how an ankle or foot injury can affect your everyday life. That is why Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy should be considered when deciding on a type of therapy to help your injury. The procedure takes no more than an hour, and patients do not have to worry about being pumped full of drugs. Instead, patients are injected with their own blood that has been concentrated to heighten the healing power of the platelets in the blood. We have seen a drastic improvement in the recovery time and improvement of patients who have chosen to receive PRP. If you are considering this therapy, the best way to find out if your condition qualifies for the therapy is to contact our office in San Ramon at (925) 393-0333.
