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.

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.

Went to see Dr. Dehdari for information about PRP treatment, on my hip, and he was able to explain the procedure and really explained it all very well. I had the PRP treatment performed over a month ago, and it has helped so much. Most of the pain in the hip is now gone and I no longer walk with a limp. If your looking for information about PRP, I would definitely recommend co silting with Dr. Dehdari.

Mel K.

I have been suffering for years with knee pain due to over use and years of playing sports. But after seeing Dr. Dehdari and getting treatment my pain is gone and I have never felt better. I am back to doing the activities I love. I got an appointment right away and he was very caring and paid attention to what I had to say.

Johnny Alborzzi

This is the natural way of letting the body heal itself with the help of an expert like Dr. Dehdari. I tried everything else -- steroids, cortisone, etc.; nothing worked. Then one visit to Dr. Dehdari and my tennis elbow is gone. Highly recommend him and this procedure.
