Post Tibial Block and PRP Injections

Dr. David Rosenblum, MD

Treat plantar fasciitis with a 2-step virtually painless procedure. Tibial nerve block enables almost painless anesthesia for most of the sole of the foot for a secondary procedure. Find the nerve adjacent to the artery in the medial ankle and inject under direct ultrasound guidance with sterile technique at preferred location. PRP or steroid can then be injected into the anesthetized plantar fascia under direct ultrasound guidance.
