Many people with heel pain wish it would just magically go away. Well, we might not be able to wave a wand and make it disappear, but we do have some high-tech solutions for heel pain that just might do the trick!
We are always looking for cutting-edge techniques to provide you with the best possible care and get you back on your feet as quickly as possible. Regenerative medicine uses technology to encourage and accelerate your natural healing abilities, and we offer several options.
Amniofix is a process in which the numerous growth factors found in amniotic membrane are broken down, or micronized, into injectable form. When injected into the problem area, this regenerative biomaterial reaches damaged tissues and stimulates cell repair and regrowth, giving your natural healing process a boost. Before you know it – presto, your heel pain’s gone!
Another alternative treatment for heel pain is Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP injections. Platelets are naturally found in your blood, and are also known to contain growth factors that accelerate healing. In this process, a highly concentrated amount of platelets are separated from your blood, then injected into the source of your heel pain. This encourages cellular regeneration – and works like magic!
Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment is also effective at making heel pain disappear! Waves of energy painlessly pass through the skin to the damaged tissues below, causing a cellular reaction that stimulates repair, improves blood flow, and quickens your body’s ability to heal itself.
