Feet and ankle injuries are common, and not just for athletes. You use your feet and ankles constantly, which takes considerable damage over time. This stresses the need to give them some tender love and care, which you can manage with Eazy Foot & Ankle PRP therapy. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy employs your body’s growth factors to enhance healing and promote better health in target areas. Among the top reasons for PRP therapy’s growing popularity include:
Symptomatic osteoarthritis symptoms relief
Osteoarthritis, also called wear and tear or degenerative joint disease, is a common feet and ankle concern, especially in aging adults. Osteoarthritis results in cartilage breakdown within your joints. The breakdown causes changes in the underlying bone. The condition is incurable and causes severe joint pain, swelling, stiffness, tenderness, and crackles. PRP therapy can help offer symptomatic relief by increasing growth factor levels in the injection area. This slows the wear progression and improves the joints’ health.
Foot and ankle injuries, whether sports-related or from trauma like bike or auto accidents, can affect your soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. Injuries affecting your ligaments can take longer to heal. They tend to be difficult to heal and demand more care, which can significantly impact the quality of your life. PRP therapy can help speed up recovery because it increases the growth factors in the injured area. Leveraging your body’s healing ability enhances the process, restoring the mobility and functionality of your ankles and feet.
PRP therapy promotes holistic healing. Unlike pain relievers that only address symptoms, PRP therapy helps your ankle and foot heal. While the therapy may take longer to deliver notable results, once they kick in, their impact lasts long. Reduced inflammation and swelling, and the improved ligament, cartilage, muscle, and tendon health alleviates pain and enhance joint functionality. This is more productive since improved ankle and foot health has a longer-lasting impact than masking the pain and other symptoms with drugs.
PRP therapy uses your naturally occurring healing and growth factors. You do not have to inject foreign materials like non-inflammatory drugs to address ankle and foot pain. This means chances of rejection or allergic reaction, as in some cortisone injection instances, are eliminated. Moreover, the therapy does not include incisions, meaning chances of complications like infection or scarring won’t derail your foot and ankle care quests. You also won’t need to take some time off. PRP therapy is fast and minimally invasive. The therapy requires no downtime for recovery, meaning you can continue your activities immediately.
Foot and ankle issues like ligament injuries, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendon can take a toll on your mobility. Walking, standing, or running can become difficult, impacting how you manage daily living activities, including your workout regimen, as you strive to stay healthier. PRP therapy offers a more holistic approach to keep your cartilage, ligament, and tendons healthier, making it easier to manage injury symptoms and conditions like arthritis.
