METHODS: databases (pubmed, EMBASE, and the cochrane library) were searched from their establishment to january 30, 2017, for randomized controlled trials (rcts) comparing PRP with steroid injections as treatments for PF. The cochrane risk of bias (ROB) tool was used to assess the methodological quality. Outcome measurements were the visual analogue scale (VAS), foot and ankle disability index (FADI), american orthopedic foot and ankle society (AOFAS) scale, and the roles and maudsley score (RMS). The statistical analysis was performed with revman 5.3.5 software.

RESULTS: nine rcts (n = 430) were included in this meta-analysis. Significant differences in the VAS were not observed between the neuro assessment physiotherapy 2 groups after 4 [weighted mean difference (WMD) = 0.56, 95% confidence interval (95% CI): -1.10 to 2.23, P = .51, I = 89%] or 12 weeks of treatment (WMD = -0.49, 95% CI: -1.42 to 0.44, P = .30, I = 89%). However, PRP exhibited better efficacy than the steroid treatment after 24 neuro assessment physiotherapy weeks (WMD = -0.95, 95% CI: -1.80 to -0.11, P = .03, I = 85%). Moreover, no significant differences in the FADI, AOFAS, and RMS were observed between the 2 therapies (P  .05).

CONCLUSION: limited evidence supports the conclusion that PRP is superior to neuro assessment physiotherapy steroid treatments for long-term pain relief; however, significant differences were not observed between short and intermediate effects. Because of the small sample size and the limited number neuro assessment physiotherapy of high-quality rcts, additional high-quality rcts with larger sample sizes are required to validate neuro assessment physiotherapy this result.

DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: the main outcomes included changes from baseline in visual analog neuro assessment physiotherapy scale (VAS) score, american orthopaedic foot and ankle society score (AOFAS), and roles-maudsley score (RMS). Results were expressed as weight mean difference (WMD) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI). The meta-analysis was performed using a fixed-effects or random-effects model according to heterogeneity.

MAIN RESULTS: ten rcts involving a total of 445 patients with plantar neuro assessment physiotherapy fasciitis were included. Among these studies, 9 compared PRP with steroid, and 1 compared PRP with whole blood. Four studies were categorized as being at low risk of neuro assessment physiotherapy bias, and the remaining 6 as being at unclear risk of neuro assessment physiotherapy bias. Pooled estimates suggested that PRP had greater changes in VAS neuro assessment physiotherapy and AOFAS scores than other treatments. However, it had no benefit effect in the RMS. Subgroup analysis for VAS and AOFAS showed that PRP had neuro assessment physiotherapy superior effect than other treatments at 12 months, but not at the 1, 3, 6 months. Subgroup analysis based on treatment regimens demonstrated that PRP was neuro assessment physiotherapy more effective than steroid in the change from baseline in neuro assessment physiotherapy AOFAS, but not in VAS and RMS scores.

AUTHORS’ CONCLUSION: PRP was as effective as other treatments in reducing pain neuro assessment physiotherapy and improving function in patients with plantar fasciitis. Subgroup analysis indicated that PRP had better effect than steroid neuro assessment physiotherapy in AOFAS score and its effect was durable in a neuro assessment physiotherapy long term. However, considering the potential limitations in this study, more large-scale rcts are needed to confirm the current findings.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: the aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the benefit of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in non-surgical orthopedic procedures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: we searched the cochrane wounds specialized register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE (through PUBMED), embase, and SCOPUS. We also searched clinical trials registries for ongoing and unpublished neuro assessment physiotherapy studies and checked reference lists to identify additional studies. RESULTS: we found 36 randomized controlled trials (2,073 patients) that met our inclusion criteria. The included studies mostly had small numbers of participants (from 20 to 225). Twenty-eight studies included patients with lateral epicondylitis or plantar fasciitis. PRP was compared to local steroids injection (19 studies), saline injection (6 studies), autologous whole blood (4 studies), local anesthetic injection (3 studies), dry needling injection (3 studies), and to other comparators (4 studies). Primary outcomes were pain and function scores, and adverse events. On average, it is unclear whether or not use of PRP compared neuro assessment physiotherapy to controls reduces pain scores and functional score at short- (up to 3 months) and medium- (4-6 months) term follow-up. The available evidence for all the comparisons was rated as neuro assessment physiotherapy very low-quality due to inconsistency, imprecision, and risk of bias in most of the selected studies. There were no serious adverse events related to PRP injection neuro assessment physiotherapy or control treatments. CONCLUSIONS: the results of this meta-analysis, which documents the very marginal effectiveness of PRP compared to neuro assessment physiotherapy controls, does not support the use of PRP as conservative treatment neuro assessment physiotherapy in orthopedics.

PMID: 27904584 BACKGROUND: plantar fasciitis (PF) is a common foot complaint, affects both active sportsmen and physically inactive middle age group. It is believed that PF results from degenerative changes rather neuro assessment physiotherapy than inflammation. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been introduced as an alternative therapy for PF. This study is aimed to systematically review to the effectiveness neuro assessment physiotherapy and relevant factors of PRP treatment in managing PF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A search was conducted in electronic databases, including pubmed, scopus, and google scholar using different keywords. Publications in english-language from 2010 to 2015 were included. Two reviewers extracted data from selected articles after the quality neuro assessment physiotherapy assessment was done. RESULTS: A total of 1126 articles were retrieved, but only 12 articles met inclusion and exclusion criteria. With a total of 455 patients, a number of potentially influencing factors on the effectiveness of neuro assessment physiotherapy PRP for PF was identified. In all these studies, PRP had been injected directly into the plantar fascia, with or without ultrasound guidance. Steps from preparation to injection were found equally crucial. Amount of collected blood, types of blood anti-coagulant, methods in preparing PRP, speed, and numbers of time the blood samples were centrifuged, activating agent added to the PRP and techniques of injection, were varied between different studies. Regardless of these variations, superiority of PRP treatment compared to steroid was reported in neuro assessment physiotherapy all studies. CONCLUSION: in conclusion, PRP therapy might provide an effective alternative to conservative management neuro assessment physiotherapy of PF with no obvious side effect or complication. The onset of action after PRP injection also greatly depended neuro assessment physiotherapy on the degree of degeneration.

-VAS: no significant differences were observed between the 2 groups. (WMD) = 0.56, 95% confidence interval (95% CI): -1.10 to 2.23, P = .51, I = 89%] or 12 weeks of treatment (WMD = -0.49, 95% CI: -1.42 to 0.44, P = .30, I = 89%). However, platelet-rich plasma exhibited better efficacy than the steroid treatment after neuro assessment physiotherapy 24 weeks (WMD = -0.95, 95% CI: -1.80 to -0.11, P = .03, I = 85%).

Local injection of PRP is an emerging therapeutic alternative. Therefore, number of rcts have been done to evaluate whether the neuro assessment physiotherapy use of PRP is effective for pain relief and functional neuro assessment physiotherapy improvements for patients with plantar fasciitis. However, the effectiveness of PRP injection still remains controversial. I have found 4 articles, which all are meta-analysis/systematic reviews. These are also published very recently. However, the rcts included in the studies are mostly small scale neuro assessment physiotherapy and not high qualitied. Benefit of PRP in the studies has shown to be neuro assessment physiotherapy effective in long term uses, but not in short term uses for plantar fasciitis. It is also shown that PRP has similar effects on neuro assessment physiotherapy functional improvement compared to steroid injection. Local injection of PRP should not be fully replaced steroid neuro assessment physiotherapy injection for the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis. More well-designed RCT studies with larger samples and higher quality will neuro assessment physiotherapy be needed to prove the effects of PRP with steroid neuro assessment physiotherapy treatment.
