Planter fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain in patients attending the orthopaedic clinics. Pathophysiology involves micro tears in the tendon leading to haemorrhage, rough granulation tissue formation and later repair. Even though the different treatment modalities have been claimed to be effective in treating this condition due to its chronic nature and tendency to recur with resumption of activity, no single modality has been considered. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection as a treatment that has been used in recent times for various enthesopathies. It repairs incompletely healed injuries thereby reducing pain and increasing function. We report a series of 5 cases of recurrent Plantar Fasciitis treated with PRP injections.
