Heel tendinitis Generic

Heel tendinitis is a condition more common in middle age men. Overweight and obesity increase the risk of heel tendinitis, also known as heel spur. It is a painful condition and most patients with heel tendinitis are not able to stand or walk properly and often limp. Pain increases at night, and often after activity, both heels will hurt.

The treatments for heel tendinitis are PRP injections and stem cell injections, reducing body weight and special shoes for heel tendinitis patients.

How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?

By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample.
The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Over the coming days and weeks it will continue to get better. Your physician may advise a course of 2-6 stem cell treatments depending on factors such as the area of treatment and the extent of damage.
