Dr. Shrish Dutt Mishra is an orthopedic doctor that has over 28 years of experience in the field and is currently practicing at Southend Orthopaedic Centre where he can be reached for any questions or concerns you might have about your healthcare needs. According to Dr. Shrush, heel pain is usually caused by plantar fasciitis or plantar fascia. In this condition, there’s an optimum supply of blood to the affected area along with an inflammatory response that causes a lot of discomforts. 

With so many options available to treat it, the doctors will work with you individually based on your specific needs as well as how long this condition has been present to find out which treatment works best against inflammation coupled with healing cascades. One of them is PRP therapy. The PRP technique for heel pain focuses on provoking a supraphysiologic release of different growth factors that are thought to be responsible for kickstarting the healing process. When there’s an increased concentration, autologous platelets will rise as well, these stimulate cell rebuildings leading toward complete recovery from soft tissue damage.
