Our Merritt Island & Melbourne, FL Custom Orthotics Specialists Can Help You Find Pain Relief
At Merritt Island Foot & Ankle we use a technique called platelet rich plasma therapy, known as PRP, that utilizes the body's own growth factors to stimulate the healing of soft tissue conditions. We also use PRP for quicker and more complete healing of diabetic wounds.
PRP is performed using a small sample of your own blood in which we concentrate the growth factors and re-introduce them into the injured area. We have found that PRP promotes quicker and more complete healing with minimal down-time that allows our patients to resume their normal activities sooner. Sometimes we combine PRP with engineered living skin substitutes to enhance your healing capacity.
In addition, many problems that in the past required extensive surgery such as ligament and tendon tears, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis are now being successfully treated without the need for open surgery. If you've been suffering with tendinitis, a ligament injury, joint pain or acute soft tissue trauma PRP may be the best solution for you.
Our friendly staff is happy to answer any inquiries you might have. Or if you’re ready to set up an appointment, we would love to see you. Make an appointment with Merritt Island Foot & Ankle and learn how Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can help restore you to optimal health.
