Pain is unfortunately a part of life, and is not necessarily limited to the elderly or infirm. The anxiety and suffering from pain, know no age, gender or any other such limitations. Yes,it can be part of aging as your muscles and joints deteriorate over time. It can also be a consequence of injury as even the young can suffer from ankle injury pain. What unites all those who suffer from ankle pain, is the search for a treatment to address and alleviate the pain. So the question is can PRP Therapy alleviate my ankle injury pain?
The ankle is a critical and a very sensitive part of the body, with a very big job to perform. It supports the weight of your whole body. Treatments to alleviate ankle pain can sometimes mean several days, weeks or even months of down time. Ankle surgery can literally knock you off your feet, sometimes at the most inconvenient time. This means time away from work, your family and your life. PRP Therapy may be the solution you are looking for.
The option of using your body’s own stem cells to promote regeneration and healing is a pain free option with no down time required for recovery. Stem cells are powerful building blocks found in your body’s blood platelets. They have the ability to promote regeneration and regrow the soft tissues in the body. They can promote an environment in which tendons, cartilage and tissues can be regrown. An injection of your body’s own stem cells can start the process with no added or artificial fillers or injectables. The body will simply undergo its own natural healing and regeneration process.
Not all types of ankle injuries can be treated in this way it does depend on the factors that caused the injury. Ankle injury pain can be caused by many different factors, some of which include, sprained or torn ligament or cartilage as well as arthritis. Normal wear and tear can occur just by carrying out our normal routine. Athletes and those who walk or stand a lot during the course of their work day can place added stress and pressure on their ankles. The result is sometimes chronic ankle pain from the loss of cartilage in the joints or overstretched, torn ligaments that can cause instability and pain.
The other problem with traditional treatment methods was that In the past, the treatment available for these types of injuries was limited to surgery with quite a bit of time needed for post surgery recovery and of course the pain associated with the recovery period as the ankle healed and regained its strength. The pain and suffering after the surgery acted as a major deterrent to those who considered surgical options to relieve their ankle injury pain, regardless of their age or the cause of the injury. PRP Therapy can be performed at your doctor’s facility and you can walk out the same day.
