Use of Combined Shockwave Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Management of Chronic Plantar Fasciitis in Runners.

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that causes heel pain and discomfort, especially in runners. It occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs from the heel bone to the toes, becomes inflamed or irritated. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including overuse, poor footwear, and biomechanical imbalances.

One treatment option for plantar fasciitis is the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. PRP is a concentration of platelets and growth factors derived from the patient’s own blood. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and healing properties, which can help to reduce pain and promote tissue repair.

However, the effectiveness of PRP injections alone may be limited for some patients, especially those with chronic or severe plantar fasciitis. In such cases, combined treatment with shockwave therapy (SWT) may be recommended.

SWT is a non-invasive procedure that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain. It works by promoting the growth of new blood vessels and improving circulation in the affected area, which can help to speed up the healing process.

A recent study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery investigated the use of combined SWT and PRP injections for the management of chronic plantar fasciitis in runners. The study included 40 patients with chronic plantar fasciitis who were randomly assigned to receive either combined SWT and PRP injections or PRP injections alone.

The results of the study showed that both groups experienced significant improvement in pain and function after treatment. However, the group that received combined SWT and PRP injections had significantly greater improvement in pain and function compared to the group that received PRP injections alone.

The study concluded that the combination of SWT and PRP injections may be an effective treatment option for chronic plantar fasciitis in runners. This combination therapy may help to accelerate healing and reduce pain more effectively than PRP injections alone.

In summary, the use of combined shockwave therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections for the management of chronic plantar fasciitis in runners may be a promising treatment option. If you are experiencing heel pain or discomfort, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.
