Ankle and foot injuries are known very well by athletes, but they are not the only people who suffer from ankle or foot injuries. 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 Central Coast Regenerative Medicine in San Luis Obispo, our Regenerative Medicine therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma injection therapy have helped many people recover from ankle and foot injuries. Regenerative medicine and PRP can be 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 several 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. These procedures can be very painful, and the recovery process may not produce the intended results. At Central Coast Regenerative Medicine in San Luis Obispo, our Regenerative Medicine Therapy offers patients an alternative to ankle surgeries and replacements. By concentrating cells before they can become “specialized cells” in the body, we reintroduce them into the affected area of the foot or ankle to promote a heightened form of natural healing.
The doctors at Central Coast Regenerative Medicine understand all too well how an ankle or foot injury can affect your everyday life. That is why regenerative therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma therapies should be considered when deciding on a type of therapy to improve 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 regenerative medicine or platelet-rich plasma. We have seen improvement in the recovery time and improvement of patients who have chosen to receive PRP or regenerative medicine therapy.
