What is Heel Pain?
Heel pain is a nagging ache that you feel in the heel bone. The pain doesn’t go away after massaging, and pain killers only provide temporary relief. Steroid injections are commonly used but can weaken tissue over time, so the number of times you can use it is limited Several causes contribute to heel pain,. including osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the Achilles tendon, and heel spurs.
Heel pain can make it difficult to walk, stand, or run. Sometimes, your heel throbs with pain even while you rest. If you’re experiencing heel pain, it’s important to seek medical attention to determine the cause and to receive treatment.
What is Fluid Flow?
Fluid flow is a therapy in which amniotic fluid and stem cells are injected into the body to initiate repair, regeneration, and reconstruction of the damaged soft tissues.
Fluid flow therapy can provide treatments for plantar fasciitis, arthritis, and pain in the Achilles tendon, along with other issues that cause inflammation and pain. It’s a safe and natural treatment that does not require surgery or drugs. Instead, it focuses on accelerating the body’s natural regeneration processes so it can heal on its own.
How We Use Fluid Flow Therapy
Fluid flow treatments involve the injection of amniotic allograft into the targeted ligament or tendon, which initiates a series of chain reactions that leads to tissue rebuilding. The allograft also helps to improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain by delivering essential growth factors and stem cells to the damaged tissue.
You can use the fluid flow to treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and heel spurs. Book your appointment now to learn more in detail.
Benefits of Using Fluid Flow Therapy for Heel Pain
Foot pain can be painful, and it can limit your daily activities. However, fluid flow treatment can help with your foot pain and improve the symptoms within no time.
Fluid flow therapy has numerous benefits:
Increases self-healing capability
With the administration of amniotic allograft, the ligaments and tendons initiate the healing process inside the body and rebuild damaged tissues. This process reduces pain and inflammation in the targeted area and allows faster recovery time.
Eliminates the need for surgery or drugs
Surgery may be an option, but it comes with risks of infection, exposure of tissue to foreign objects, and a long recovery time. Medications also have side effects that can be harmful to your health. But with fluid flow treatment, you don’t have to worry about any of these problems as it’s all-natural.
Improves blood circulation
Poor blood circulation can be a significant contributor to heel pain. The fluid flow treatment helps to improve blood circulation, and it also brings essential nutrients to the tissues to aid in faster healing.
Decreases pain and inflammation
Fluid flow therapy helps with the regeneration of cells deep within the body’s soft tissues. This regeneration reduces pain and stiffness while speeding up recovery. The administration of the amniotic allograft results in a decrease in local inflammation and edema.

What is the Recovery Timeline to Cure Heel Pain?
The time required to treat heel pain entirely varies from person to person and is also dependent on the severity of the condition, age, and general health. It also depends on how your body responds to the treatment. Some people may experience immediate relief, while others may take a little longer.
Generally, you can expect to see results within a few months. After the first injection, there might be slight discomfort, redness, and even pain for a day or two. Subsequent injections will not result in any pain or discomfort after the doctor has administered the fluid flow.
What are the Precautions After Fluid Flow?
There are no special precautions required after the administration of fluid flow, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, we do recommend that you avoid putting any strain on the affected limb for a few days to allow your body time to heal.
You can get a massage or apply a heating pad to the injection site to minimize needle soreness. Techniques that improve blood circulation like acupressure or acupuncture can also alleviate pain in the injection site.
