What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis occurs when there is a strain in the ligaments that support the arch on the bottom of the foot. Strains can be caused from excessive amounts of running, walking, biking, dancing, or jumping, and over time, the strain leads to small tears in the ligaments. Anyone can develop Plantar Fasciitis, and an excessive amount of strain and tears can lead to pain and swelling that is characteristic of Plantar Fasciitis.

Other common symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis may include:

  • Stabbing pain near the heel
  • Burning pain in the bottom of the foot
  • Swelling
  • Heel pain with standing
  • Pain in the heel upon awakening

Many patients suffering from Plantar Fasciitis have been able to reduce pain and perform their desired activities with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.

 

How can PRP Therapy improve the symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?

Because Plantar Fasciitis is often a chronic and ongoing condition that can be difficult to treat, many patients are regularly prescribed prescription drugs to tolerate the pain and to be able to perform their daily activities. Often, prescription drugs are accompanied with side effects that can also reduce the quality of life. However, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a natural therapy that uses platelets, growth factors, and stem cells to regenerate damaged areas of the ligaments and fascia. Patients that have used Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy have been able to obtain long lasting relief of the pain and inflammation caused from Plantar Fasciitis. 

What are the benefits of PRP Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis?

Patients can obtain numerous benefits from the use of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. One such benefit includes a reduction or elimination in the use of prescription medications and their side effects. Another advantage of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is that there is little to no risk of infection or rejection because the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells all originate in the patient’s body. The therapy requires little to no downtime and can be performed in under an hour. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has the ability to regenerate damaged tissues, which can help patients to experience long lasting relief.
