This is a personal question frequently asked by my friends and family.
1 in 10 people in the US experience persistent pain along the bottom of their feet. A condition commonly diagnosed as plantar fasciitis. In 2014, the orthopaedic section of the American Physical Therapy Association published updated clinical practice guidelines on the best treatments for patients with plantar fasciitis. Evidence strongly suggests manual therapy, rehabilitative exercise, and stretches. Overall, patients that received Physical Therapy had decreased pain within the POC (plan of care) and averaged less medical expenses.
If you have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, Physical Therapy offers evidence based treatments to help you recover from your pain.
