HOUSTON, TX, July 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Suffering from painful heel pain and nothing seems to be working? Perhaps you have unbearable foot pain that just never seems to go away? If so, you are in luck. The podiatrists at Diagnostic Foot Specialists offer Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, an innovative treatment option for anyone dealing with nagging plantar fasciitis and other sources of heel pain.
Unlike invasive foot surgeries, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy works by obtaining a sample of the patient's own blood and storing it in a centrifuge. From there, the patient's blood is separated into plasma and concentrated blood platelets, and then injected into the injured area. Depending on the nature of the injury, one to three injections may be necessary.
After undergoing Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy at a Diagnostic Foot Specialists location, you might report notice an "archy" soreness at the site of your injury. Your Houston podiatrist will explain that is perfectly normal and is a sign that the healing process has begun. They will also give you specific instructions for a safe recovery. These instructions include not taking anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen, Naproxen, and Asprin, as well as avoiding strenuous lifting or high-level exercise for a set amount of time.
Besides offering this treatment at their three offices in the Greater Houston area, their Bryan-College Station foot doctor, Sugar Land podiatrist, and Victoria podiatrist locations also provide the procedure. Contact the foot experts present at any location today to learn how Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can make your heel pain be a thing of the past.
The Bryan-College Station, Houston, Sugar Land, and Victoria foot doctors at Diagnostic Foot Specialists have over 20 years of experience at treating patients with a wide array of foot problems, including bunions, heel spurs, ingrown toenails and more.
With six locations across Southeast Texas, Diagnostic Foot Specialists can efficiently alleviate foot pain.
