Plantar Fasciitis is a common condition which causes pain at the heel. One in 10 people will experience heel pain at some time in their lives. The onset of pain is typically experienced at the start of the day or after a period of rest. The plantar fascia is a thick tissue at the sole of the foot and has a supportive role in the movement of the foot during walking. Symptoms from plantar fasciitis may arise as a result sub-optimal footwear or starting new exercises. Repetitive injury to the plantar fascia can result in tears and inflammation resulting in symptoms of pain.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as autologous conditioned plasma, takes advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone. It can reduce pain, improve joint function and helps you quickly return to normal activities.
PRP supports your body’s self-healing processes by using your own cells. Blood is mostly liquid (called plasma) but also contains solid component including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets are important for clotting blood but they also contain proteins called growth factors which are important in the healing of injuries.
With a higher concentration of growth factors than typically found in blood, PRP injections support the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes.
This treatment is widely researched and supported in clinical papers. See our PRP evidence section.
