Heel Pain Can Be Healed
Regenerative Therapy Brings Remarkable Relief
Over 1 million people a year suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, the most common cause of heel pain. The condition is often caused by repeated trauma or overuse, and may result in micro-tears in the plantar fascia (the ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes). If your heel or bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk, especially first thing in the morning or after sitting for awhile, this may be you.
At Southlake Physical Medicine, we offer one of the most advanced treatments for Plantar Fasciitis - Regenerative Therapy. If you've tried other methods like steroid injections, stretching exercises, anti-inflammatory pills and orthotics with little to no success, then you need to consider Regenerative Therapy.
Many of our patients with chronic Plantar Fasciitis, after receiving a single-dose injection, have experienced significant improvement in symptoms and increased function within 1 week, and continued improvement over the following 8 weeks. Regenerative Therapy is successful because it contains growth factors which work to initiate a tendon healing response leading to long-term results. Patients that were treated with steroid injections had a significantly lower average magnitude of improvement, with relapse a fairly common occurrence.
