Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a ‘cutting edge’ treatment that involves taking a patient’s own blood and concentrating the levels of platelets and growth factors and then injecting this into the damaged tissue to promote healing.
Cortisone Injection Therapy
Cortisone is a hormone that is naturally produced by your body's adrenal gland as a response to stress. Cortisone injections contain a synthetic version of this substance and are given as an injection directly into the injured tissue. Unlike natural cortisone, synthetic cortisone is not injected into the blood stream and therefore has no effect on the rest of the body.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Hyaluronic acid injections are one treatment option to consider to help reduce the pain and stiffness of an arthritic joint. Most studies of hyaluronic acid injections have involved the knee joint. There is now growing evidence of their use for foot and ankle joint arthritis.
