The therapeutic treatment approach for Plantar Fasciitis.

The patient

P.M.; a 52 year old female, complained of recently experiencing severe pain in both heels after 3 years of intermittent moderate pain. Not only was she upset with the increase in pain severity but the intermittent pain over the last 3 years had limited her activities, which caused her to gain weight.

My initial evaluation found damaged/fibrotic/inflammation of the plantar fascia caused by poor foot mechanics that is consistent with plantar fasciitis.

Treatments Methodologies

I employed a three-fold approach to address the issues: 

  1. I therapeutically broke down the fibrotic tissue using ultrasound.
  2. I provided her with BioPods Stimsoles to correct the maladapted foot function.
  3. I prescribed gentle exercises to increase her foot and ankle’s range of motion (the raising of her foot through the ankle and the raising of her toes).

Results

After 10 treatments and 8 weeks of consistent use of the BioPods Stimsoles, her pain disappeared and her exercise capacity was restored. After 5 months, she has not experienced any return of symptoms.
