PRP Injection Therapy for Chronic or Acute Ankle and Foot Pain
Serving Tomball, Spring, Cypress and NW Houston.
Discover common reasons for chronic ankle and foot pain and how PRP helps you heal without pain meds or surgery.
As a flexible synovial joint, the ankle allows lots of diverse movement throughout a wide range of tasks and activities. Together with the multiple joints of the foot, the ankle helps us complete movements ranging from a simple flex to highly complex footwork. Whether you’re participating in the simplest of actions, such as walking and running, or practicing something a little more elaborate, our feet and ankles allow us the flexibility while simultaneously helping us stay balanced and supported.
It is not uncommon that individuals experience foot or ankle pain at some point in their lives. Made up of several bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissue, the ankle and foot become widely susceptible to countless injuries and normal wearing down of the joints. Because of the important role our ankles and feet play in our day to day lives, pain in the region can be disruptive, troublesome, and uncomfortable. With little blood flow to the area, healing can also be notoriously slow, perpetuating the pain and discomfort experienced.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an avenue for relief that addresses pain at the source while empowering the body’s natural healing mechanisms to take place more quickly and more efficiently. Here at New You Stem Cell Center, we dedicate ourselves to equipping each patient with what they need to achieve healing through stem cell therapy and stem cell activation treatments.

How PRP Can Help with Ankle Pain and Foot Pain
Unlike medications and cortisone injections that temporarily relieve symptoms associated with ankle pain and foot pain, platelet-rich plasma therapy tackles the source of the pain, mending and fixing what has been damaged due to injury or normal wear and tear. By harnessing the body’s own natural healing processes, the procedure promotes complete recovery and enhanced healing.
After the rich plasma substance is separated from the other components in a patient’s own blood sample, it is then injected into the troubled joint. Because of its high concentration of growth factors and healing proteins, the potent substance begins working immediately once injected, signaling other differentiation-capable base cells to flock to the area. These base cells have the innate capacity to reverse degradation, reduce inflammation, and stimulate healing in tendons, ligaments, bone, and soft tissue. Though this mimics the body’s natural response to damage, PRP quickens the pace and increases the intensity of the healing process, leading to optimal recovery and regeneration.
By rebuilding, mending, and promoting the growth and specialization of new, healthy cells, platelet-rich plasma therapy not only relieves symptoms associated with ankle and foot pain but creates actual long-term healing in the joint.
