As one of the most common forms of heel pain, Plantar Fasciitis is a result of inflammation within the plantar fascia. This thick band of tissue extends along the bottom of the foot, and connects the heel bone to the toes. The Mayo Clinic explains that the condition often causes a stabbing pain as an individual takes their first steps in the morning. Though the pain lessens with more movement, it can return after long periods of standing or when a person gets up after sitting. Moreover, while plantar fasciitis is widely associated with runners, people who are overweight or wear shoes with inadequate support might also have an increased risk.

Despite known risk factors, there are instances in which plantar fasciitis can develop without rhyme or reason. What’s more, when tension and stress are placed on the tissue, stretching can actually do more harm than good. This is because repetitive stretching can result in more inflammation. Therefore, when individuals experience heel pain, it is important not to ignore it or attempt to power through it. Doing so could lead to more serious problems involving the foot, knee, hip or back.

Treatment for Foot and Heel Pain

Conventional treatment for plantar fasciitis involves rest, cryotherapy (ice) and specific stretching exercises (once inflammation has subsided). Pain relievers may also be recommended to ease heel pain, along with cortisone injections, physical therapy, splinting or orthotics.

However, for athletes and individuals that are susceptible to ongoing episodes of plantar fasciitis, biologic regenerative treatment protocols provide an appealing option that is safe and effective.

At Advanced Healing Institute in Lake Forest, CA, Dr. Dehdari offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections that not only quicken an individual’s recovery from conditions like plantar fasciitis, it signals the body’s natural regenerative healing process to repair damage to the plantar fascia. Patients avoid the need for hospitalization and actually move towards long-lasting improvement and healing.

To discuss the benefits of regenerative treatment for plantar fasciitis, call Advanced Healing Institute to arrange a consultation with musculoskeletal radiologist and interventional specialist Dr. Reza Dehdari.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.
