Woman with Plantar Fasciitis with Shoe Off

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition of the foot in which the fascia (band of tissues) reaching from the heel to the toe becomes inflamed, as reported by WebMD. As such, the pain and inflammation could be from tiny tears within the tissues or as a result of overuse and overstretching. Even so, most report that plantar fasciitis is worse early in the morning, after sitting for a long time or following exercise. In any case, however, painful symptoms can linger for months, and can dramatically affect one’s quality of life.

Common treatments for plantar fasciitis include foot bracing, strapping and cortisone injections. Yet, a regenerative approach using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a viable alternative that heals the injury and provides long-term improvement and pain reduction.

The process of PRP Therapy involves taking a small sample of a patient’s blood and placing it in a centrifuge machine, where the blood is spun and separated into components. The concentrated plasma is then re-injected into the area of injury or pain, where it releases growth factors needed for tissue repair. What’s more, the growth factors signal the body’s production of growth cells, which aids in healing. Therefore, the use of PRP leverages a body’s own healing capabilities. In addition, the amount of PRP utilized can be adjusted based on the extent of injury and the needs of a patient.

Precision Counts!

While PRP Therapy is becoming more recognized as a viable alternative to pain medications and invasive surgery, patients must understand that precision counts. In other words, the effectiveness of PRP therapy requires a deep knowledge and understanding of human anatomy, as well as proper placement of the injection. For instance, if an ankle injury has contributed to a patient’s plantar fasciitis pain, it is important to treat the ankle injury as well as the foot pain. After all, the key is to establish healing and restore function, and a strong ankle is needed to support the foot.

Dr. Dehdari of Advanced Healing Institute is a highly respected and experienced radiologist, with a reputation for remarkable technique and precision. If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis or foot pain, call the Advanced Healing Institute to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dehdari today.

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...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

I can’t say enough about how intelligent Dr. Reza Dehdari is! I came to him to read my MRI for my ankle and he found a tear that multiple Doctors missed!!!! Simply incredible and I trust him throughly. Thank you so much!

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.

My son went to see Dr. Reza for a shoulder injury he received from repeated use due to training. My son had tried physical therapy and a cortisone shot with little success. Dr. Reza thoroughly explained the benefits of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and he felt confident he could help my son. The procedure itself is amazing and my son was comfortable the entire time. I LOVE the fact that my son's own body was healing itself without the use of drugs. His shoulder is so much better and he was able to resume training after two weeks. I would highly recommend the PRP shot with Dr. Reza and will definitely see him again if the need arose.

Within the last 6 months I've suffered two minor injuries on the same knee which have restricted my mobility and caused me a lot of pain. I've seen an orthopedic dr.,, a pain management dr., and a sports medicine dr., all of which simply told me either surgery or learn to live with the pain! I've heard about PRP as an alternative with a high percentage of success. Thus, I made an appointment to see Dr. Dehdari, and was pleasantly surprised by his high level of knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Dehdari reviewed my MRI (previously ordered by the Orthopedist) explained the extent of my injuries, took X-Rays and an ultrasound to carefully determined if I was a good candidate for PRP. I can only say that I wish more doctors will give you the time, attention and care that Dr. Dehdari provides. Thank you Dr Dehdari, thank you for such high work ethics and patient care. Many thanks to his staff as they are as attentive and caring as Dr. Dehdari. It has been only 24 hrs since I received my PRP treatment and my pain levels have drastically gone down! I highly recommend Dr. Dehdari.
