Regenerative therapies have exploded in popularity, with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet rich gels emerging as promising treatments for a variety of inflammatory conditions. Platelet Rich Plasma and gel use the remarkable growth factors and healing properties contained within the platelets of your own blood to treat sports injuries, and other inflammatory conditions including Plantar Fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful, but common condition resulting from inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot between the heel and toes. When this thick band becomes irritated or inflamed it can result in moderate to severe heel pain.
Platelet rich gel and PRP injections offer non-surgical hope to those suffering from plantar fasciitis. When the gel or plasma is injected into the injured tissue it stimulates natural regeneration of healthy tissue by increasing blood flow to the injured area. Platelet rich gel may also prevent further scar tissue formation.
As a promising alternative to surgery, ultrasound guidance ensures the PRP or platelet rich gel precisely targets the injured tissue.
