Platelet-rich plasma: can it have an impact on tendinosis and plantar fasciosis?
PRP is promoted as a product derived from ideal autologous biological blood, which can be applied exogenously to various tissues in which it releases high concentrations of platelet-derived growth factors that improve wound healing, bone healing and also healing of tendons. In addition, PRP possesses antimicrobial properties that can contribute to the prevention of infections. When platelets are activated, the growth factors are released and initiate the body's natural healing response.
Platelet-rich plasma is a non-surgical method to cure foot and ankle injuries quickly and without surgery or pain.
