Despite its popularity in the field of cosmetic and orthopaedic medicine, there are still those who have no idea as to how doctors perform treatments involving the use of the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP Boynton Beach treatment makes use of the patient’s own platelet concentrate to heal the injuries to their ligaments or muscles. Here is how PRP treatment is done:
The doctor extracts blood from the patient. The procedure of extracting blood is just like when blood is drawn for lab works.
The extracted blood will then be spun in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components.
The PRP will then be injected to the injured part of the foot. The PRP is rich in growth factors which are important for the healing process. The PRP treatment is available at Mattison Podiatry Group.
