Chronic Or Recurrent Plantar Fasciitis Options

If you still have Plantar Fasciitis or have it again this message is for you. We keep learning more about this condition and what works best to cure it. Never fear if you’ve had it for months or even years. There definitely is a solution!

One thing we know now more than ever is that more people with pain in the heel develop more scar-like tissue than we ever realized. The pain tends to be more consistent and often more intense. If you got relief from cortisone or other treatments but the pain has returned, you could have this scar-like tissue problem. The Plantar Fascia essentially degenerates for an unknown reason. When it does so the body can’t regenerate it without outside help.

One of the most exciting innovations in healthcare is Stem Cell treatment. We’ve seen astonishing results using stem cells in treating Plantar Fasciitis. What they do essentially is regenerate tissue that has degenerated. These cells are the outside help the body needs to heal the damaged tissue. Not only is Stem Cell treatment safe and effective, it prevents the need for surgery. What’s more, a treatment of this kind doesn’t necessitate time missed from work. Finding innovative treatments that keep our patients doing everyday tasks remains a goal of ours.

Besides Stem Cell treatment, the other non-invasive technology we’ve been using successfully for chronic heel pain is called Prolotheray. Prolotherapy helps regenerate a degenerated Plantar Fascia just like stem cells do, but in a different way. Prolotherapy jump starts the healing process by “tricking” the body that there is an acute injury in an area, signaling the healing process to begin again. And, just like stem cells it’s done right in our office without any down-time.

Should a surgical approach be needed, minimally invasive plantar fascia release is and effective solution, which can also be performed in our office with minimal down time.

We’d be happy to determine whether Stem Cell Treatment, Prolotherapy, surgery or another treatment is the best option for you. We’re here to serve you.
