The Washington Heel Pain Center has been using platelet rich plasma therapy for years. We have found it to be highly successful, especially in cases of recalcitrant plantar fasciitis. The process involves harvesting of the blood of the patient and spinning it down to the plasma components. This is then injected back into the fascia and the healing cascade is initiated.
A large number of people that we see have tried multiple other modalities to no avail and this platelet rich plasma therapy has been extremely successful. The great advantage of platelet rich plasma therapy is that it can often help avoid surgery for many patients. It is also beneficial the fact that it uses your bodies naturally healing cascade to cure the plantar fasciitis. The platelet rich plasma therapy can be performed and approximately 45 minutes. If you have suffer from plantar fasciitis and have tried corticosteroid injections and physical therapy all to no avail, schedule appointment at the Washington Heel Pain Center or give us a call at 425-880-9552.
