95 Percent Success Rate with PRP for Pain
Platelet-rich plasma injection therapy is a cutting-edge treatment touted as a medical miracle, replacing cortisone shots, drug therapy and surgery. This amazing procedure is currently the rave in sports medicine. Kobe Bryant, Cliff Lee, Tiger Woods, Bartolo Colon and more are among the many professional athletes who have seen dramatic results with this procedure. Simply put, this is a natural way to heal - not mask - acute or chronic conditions without any side effects. Ailments currently being treated with the PRP therapy are arthritis, tendonitis, muscle sprains and tears, neuritis and ligament injuries. Phenomenal results have been experienced by SCVians struggling with plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, joint pain, neuritis, neuromas and various other chronic conditions, too.

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These growth factors number at least a dozen different factors. These bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing in tissues such as meniscus (knee) and rotator cuff tissue, bone and articular cartilage regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels and stimulate the wound-healing process. The PRP signals the body to send in stem cells to repair the area of injury by generating new tissue and formation of new blood vessels.

The way this process works is a small amount of blood is taken from the patient's arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The specially-prepared platelets are taken and re-injected into the affected area. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 600 percent.
At Valencia Foot & Ankle Center, the success rate so far has been 95 percent.

Chill Out with Cool New Treatments that Speed Recovery
"Fast, thorough recovery is essential to my Pilates and yoga practices, as well as when I'm prepping for competition. I eat well, am kind to my body and I do my research - which is why I'm such a proponent of treating myself and others to the natural, proven method of cryotherapy and compression treatment. I've witnessed the healing, pain reduction, inflammation reduction and immunity boosting qualities of cryotherapy myself - and it's now a vital, regular part of my self-care plan. I'm able to perform better, feel better and engage each day with more energy and joy when I spend those three minutes once a week in the cryotherapy chamber at Mend! Adding their NormaTec compression treatments is icing on the health-and-wellbeing cake." Ashley Howard
