What is PRP therapy used for?
PRP injection therapy is a non-invasive treatment and uses your body’s own healing mechanism. Since it is involving your own blood, there are no risks or side effects. Studies have shown that PRP injection is very effective in healing Plantar Fasciitis and the effects are far superior then a cortisone injection because it delivers a month’s worth of blood nutrient supply in a day to promote fast healing to an area like the plantar fascia that usually has a limited amount of blood supply at its disposal.
How does PRP work?
The PRP Injection for Plantar Fasciitis procedure involves the following steps:
- Draw blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge to extract PRP
- The PRP is then directly injected into the plantar fascia with the help of Ultrasonic imagery.
- A CAM (Controlled Ankle Movement) shoe is worn for two weeks to limit movement.
