Boy, what a pain this is.
I just read this article from Medscape about Plantar Fasciitis.
I am sure GPs will agree with me that this is one of the most common foot problems seen in their clinics. And treatment can be difficult as well as it tends to drag on or become a recurrent condition in some patients.
The article mentions most of the modalities of treatment we would generally use (although now, I tend to discourage patients from getting steroid injections into the affected area....damn painful, & also not advisable) but seems to have left out NSAID’s for symptomatic relief.
Oh, and I think they could have mentioned CROCS as well…. :)
