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. If you are having trouble getting rid of your heel pain, call our office or make an appointment today to discuss Amniofix.
