Old and severe heel pain is called plantar fasciitis. It causes a very painful and severe irritation which also requires surgery. Now the University of Pittsburgh has achieved partial success in treating these patients by injecting abdominal fat.
Although only 14 people were tested, the results are very encouraging. Otherwise, the operation gives some relief, otherwise you can get some relief by placing the balloon or ball under the heel every day. But the fat vaccine has given new hope to those patients whose case was published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery on January 25. It is important to note here that this condition becomes a persistent condition and there is no cure.
According to Jeff Geusnov of the University of Pittsburgh and his colleagues, the patient’s fat reaches the heel itself and regenerates the inner tissue. The reason is that fats, along with stem cells, also contain ingredients that make biological organisms grow.
A small hole was drilled to remove fat from the abdominal tissue of 14 patients and the fat was injected. The vaccine was later injected into the heel and inserted into the fat. A six-week precaution was followed, but in six months to a year, the patient was greatly relieved, and the majority called it a revolutionary step.
According to doctors, vaccination does not provide immediate relief, but its magical effects begin to appear within six months. Although this is a brief study, further research is needed.
