Successful plantar fasciitis treatment often involves a combination of various different treatment measures.
No single treatment measure appears to be consistently successful in eliminating plantar fasciitis on its own. For example... anti-inflammatory medication may help some plantar fasciitis sufferers, but it NEVER works for everyone. For most people, this medication seems to make no difference whatsoever.
Simple plantar fasciitis treatment measures include:
Activity modification is helpful especially when climbing steps or stairs. Sudden backward extension of the toes needs to be prevented to prevent re-injury of the plantar fascia during the early stages of treatment.
More advanced plantar fasciitis treatment measures may include:
Plantar fasciitis treatment is often successful and rarely requires surgery.
