Alternative Solutions for Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief
Regenerative medicine is an effective solution for plantar fasciitis pain, which is a condition that affects the bottom of your foot in an area called the plantar fascia. This ligament stretches from your heel to your toes, and it can become overstretched, swollen and even torn, leading to serious foot pain.
Some of the common causes of plantar fasciitis include:
- Unsupportive footwear
- Jumping or running on a consistent basis
- Standing for long periods of time
- Increased pressure on your feet caused by obesity
- Having flat feet or high arches
How Does Regenerative Medicine Work as an Effective Solution for Foot Pain Relief?
Regenerative medicine treatments like platelet-rich plasma and regenerative tissue help to relieve foot pain by getting to the underlying cause of the problem and not just targeting the pain itself. It’s important to remember that pain is just the by-product of a larger issue; it’s not the actual problem. When you cover up your pain with medication, all you are really doing is providing a temporary solution that perpetuates a never-ending cycle. But when you address the root cause of your painful feet, you can resolve that issue and finally have the long-lasting pain relief you’ve been looking for.
Our regenerative tissue treatments start with the collection of tissue derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords after a scheduled C-section.
The mother and baby are both unharmed during the process. The tissue we collect is loaded with potent healing properties. They work alongside your body’s own healing mechanisms to get the kind of results you need.
Some of the healing properties in regenerative tissue include:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
Platelet-rich plasma is another regenerative treatment we use for pain relief. It works with your body to resolve underlying issues and provide lasting results. This treatment begins when we draw a small sample of your own blood and place it in a centrifuge. As it spins, the red blood cells and platelets separate. This leaves highly concentrated platelets behind. These platelets are then injected into your damaged foot tissue to help facilitate the healing process.
