Benefits of PRP Therapy to Treat Plantar Fasciitis
Considering research findings that have debunked the effectiveness of traditional treatment methods like steroid injections and anti-inflammatory medications for treating chronic plantar fasciitis, PRP Therapy may be the only treatment method that can permanently repair severely damaged plantar fascia.
In addition to providing profound, long-term results, PRP Therapy is safe and carries zero risk because the platelets that are injected during the procedure are derived from the patient’s own blood.
The relatively fast recovery period following the procedure is another benefit that surprises many of our patients. Soft tissues like plantar fascia have very few blood vessels and a limited blood supply. This is why tendons and ligaments heal much slower than other areas of the body. By injecting PRP concentrate into soft tissues, Dr. Jethani can deliver up to a month’s worth of platelets and other blood nutrients in a single day, resulting in accelerated healing.
