Plantar Fasciitis FAQs

Treatment of the pain aspect in plantar fasciitis cases is really a matter of systematic trial and error. Find practitioners who will work their way through different treatment methods until they find those that work best for you. At that point you should decide whether you also want to rehabilitate any of the underlying weaknesses in your feet and legs that caused you to have pain in the first place.

The best treatment for plantar fasciitis is ultimately the one that works for you, unfortunately there is no way of knowing which that is without trying them out. The treatments with the best track record at our clinic are scar tissue scraping (guasha), acupuncture, deep tissue release, stretching and vibration massage.

We take pain killers because they often give great (if temporary) relief from chronic pain conditions like plantar fasciitis. If you are looking to take a more serious look at resolving your condition take painkillers as you need them but also look deeper into the topic of actually healing the issue.  Seek some treatment that prioritises managing pain and scar tissue build up, and that then moves on to restoring strength and support to the foot.
