What is a PRP ankle pain injection?

The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then separating the platelets from the other blood cells using a centrifuge. Platelets are a type of blood cell that are involved in the clotting process and also contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue healing. Next, the medical provider injects the concentrated platelets back into the patient at the site of the injury or pain.

How can PRP injection help the ankle?

Is there any downtime?

PRP injections are generally considered to be safe, with few reported side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks involved and it’s important to discuss these with your medical provider before proceeding.


Treatment results.

PRP injections can be used in the early, mild and moderate stages where evidence supports benefit. However, it is not appropriate to have PRP treatment when the joint has severe changes.

PRP injections have been found to be more effective than hyaluronic acid and steroid injections.

Who is a good candidate?

Not everyone is a good candidate for our PRP ankle pain treatment, and the last thing we want to do is promise an ankle pain treatment to someone unlikely to benefit from it. When you come in for a consultation, we will sit down with you to learn and evaluate your ankle pain. If you are a good candidate, we will develop a treatment specifically tailored to your needs.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment may be recommended for people experiencing ankle sprains, achilles tendinitis, and ankle osteoarthritis (OA). PRP treatment may be considered when other treatments, such as medications, physical therapy, or rest, have not been effective in relieving pain or improving function.

Ankle sprain:

Although in many cases a muscle sprain may well heal on its own, with some people recurring pain can endure for for several months after the initial injury.

Achilles tendonitis:

This can occur either from a sudden trauma, such as a fall, or it can develop over the course of time. No matter what the cause, this condition is almost always associated with intense, unrelenting pain.

PRP injections can help accelerate both healing and recovery. More than one injection may be needed, depending on the severity of the condition.

Ankle osteoarthritis:

Ankle osteoarthritis is the occurrence of osteoarthritis (OA) in the ankle joint. A few small research studies suggest PRP injections may reduce ankle arthritis symptoms in some people.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Can regenerative treatments help relieve chronic pain?2023-11-01T23:39:09+00:00

Regenerative cell procedures can provide relief of chronic pain by potentially healing damaged tissue, building new tissue, reducing inflammation and preventing scar tissue from forming in the injured area.
