Plantar faciitis

18 Months ago I was diagnosed with Plantar faciitis after experiencing severe pain in my heel.
Up to now I was treated by a physio, used anti- inflammatory drugs, had 2 cortisone injection under local anaesthetic and 2 injections under anaesthetic in a theatre.
Currently I am on a course of anti- inflammatory drugs for 30 days. I am also wearing a resllient cushion in my shoe for almost a year. It is only my left food that is affected
My heel is still affected and I can hardly stand or walk
What else can you suggest

Hallo Fanie
Sometimes putting the foot in plaster is the only solution. Did you see an orthopedic surgeon/specialist for this? See also

Yes I am under treatment by an orthopedic surgeon for the last year, thank you for your comment, I am most certainly going to follow up on the idea of putting the food in plaster
