PRP to Treat Plantar Fasciitis
Rationale: The standard treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis is corticosteroid injections. Corticosteroid injection give temporarily pain reduction, but no healing. Blood platelets initiate the natural healing rate. GPS ® gives an eightfold concentrate platelets of patients own blood. Injection of these platelets in the tendon might induce a healing rate.

Objective: To compare the efficacy of autologous platelet concentrate injections with corticosteroid injection in patients suffering from plantar fasciitis with respect to pain and function.
