Our expert says:
Yes there is definately alot more that could be done for plantar fasciitis. The cause of the condition should be identified and removed or attended to. Treatment approach should include long and short term regimes which includes assessment and advise on shoewear, possible customade orthotics, physiotherapy, chiropratic and biokinetic assessment, stretching and exercises. I would highly recommend that you consult with a podiatrist that would be able to assess and treat your condition.
