Ive had this Plantar Fasciitisl in both my feet and oetrio arthritus for the past couple of years...The doctors have tried the steriod injections, and various other things to help with the pain etc...But nothing has worked instead the injections have caused my migraines to come even worse. Ive been to see an ortho surgeon who has agreed to try another treatment on me..its called a PRP which is Platelets rich plasma..Ive been looking into this treatment, and this is what i have found... PRP is produced from a person's own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for the cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization that are required for healing.
After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the blood into its many components. Platelet rich plasma can then be collected and treated before it is delivered to an injured area of bone or soft tissue, such as a tendon or ligament.
PRP is given to patients through an injection, and ultrasound guidance can assist in the precise placement of PRP. After the injection, a patient must avoid exercise for a short period of time before beginning a rehabilitation exercise prog
