Q Are there any other options for my heel pain that just won't go away?
One of the newest options for recalcitrant (that's Dr speak for stubborn) heel pain is an injectable called Amniofix. This is a revolutionary new treatment that delivers growth factors and extracellular matrix proteins (AKA...the good healing stuff) to your inflamed, painful heel. Amniofix is a one time injectable that is no more painful than a cortisone injection. It is similar to PRP (platelet rich protein) injections, however you do not need to have your own blood drawn for this injection. It is also a 1 time injection and PRP is typically 3.
