Achilles Tendonitis Treatment
Every athlete is aware of the risk of developing Achilles tendonitis, an injury that results from the overuse of the Achilles tendon. This condition greatly affects mobility and will only worsen if the sufferer does not seek treatment. When the Achilles tendon is damaged, recovery can take a long period of time.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment offers an effective treatment option for Achilles tendonitis. The repair process involved in this condition is typically slow. By using precision guided injections of platelet rich plasma to target the damaged areas of the tendon, Dr. Dehdari can help to speed up the healing process.
What are the Symptoms and Causes of Achilles Tendonitis?
The main cause of Achilles tendonitis is the tendon being overworked through walking, running and similar activities. The condition can also occur due to various malformations that result in the tendon becoming strained even through light activity.
The symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include mild to severe pain around the heel, tenderness and stiffness that typically occurs during rest. Athletes can exacerbate the condition through continued sporting activity by working through the pain in the early stages of the condition.
Regenerative Medicine for Effective Treatment of Your Achilles Tendonitis!
Repairing the damage from Achilles tendonitis can be achieved through regenerative medicine. Blood is drawn from the patient and platelet rich plasma is extracted through the use of a centrifuge device. Dr. Dehdari then uses his skills as an experienced radiologist to direct injections into precise locations to alleviate pain and swelling.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment works by initiating the body’s natural repair mechanism. The effectiveness of the treatment largely relies on the knowledge and skills of the doctor.
