The average person spends a lot of time on their feet, especially if they work retail or a physically demanding job, such as construction. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot pain in Naples, FL, but the good news is that PRP therapy is an effective way to treat the pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, non-invasive way to encourage your body to heal itself. Hiler Chiropractic & Neurology/ Feel Amazing Institute uses PRP to address the root cause of the pain. The body is able to repair the damaged tissue, offering lasting results. Plus, it takes very little rehabilitation time when compared to surgery or physical therapy.
Your foot has ligaments in the arch, which help connect the heel to the front of your foot. These are called the plantar fascia. They’re meant to help absorb the stress you put on your feet day to day. However, if you put extreme stress on the plantar fascia, they can tear or otherwise become damaged. This leaves you with inflammation, pain and stiffness that never seems to fully go away.
People with plantar fasciitis describe it as an excruciating stabbing pain in the heel. The pain, stiffness and inflammation might pop up after vigorous activity, but it can be triggered by regular activity, too—even walking can be very painful when you’re living with plantar fasciitis.
About 10 percent of Americans experience plantar fasciitis each year. Of those people, 80 percent are between the ages of 25 and 65. However, age isn’t the sole determining factor. People who enjoy high-impact activities or work in jobs where they’re on their feet all day are likely to suffer from plantar fasciitis. It can also affect people who wear shoes with little or no arch support.
If you work a physically demanding job, make sure you wear comfortable shoes with plenty of cushion and arch support. It makes a huge difference as to whether you’ll end up with plantar fasciitis or are able to avoid the pain entirely.
If you do have plantar fasciitis, PRP therapy can help. Hiler Chiropractic & Neurology/ Feel Amazing Institute we draw a small amount of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and proteins. We then inject the the PRP and protein concentrate at the injury site so they can help rebuild delicate tissue and ligaments in the foot.
