Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis can include physical therapy, injections, splinting, shock wave therapy, surgery, and custom foot orthotics.

It’s interesting to note how people often take better care of the things they own than they do their bodies.  Take cars for example.  Frequently, owners make faithful priority of their car maintenance:  scheduling oil changes, tire rotations even detailing and car washes, with fluids all topped up to boot.  So why is it people often wait until they’re njured to visit sports therapy clinics?  That’s like waiting until you have engine trouble before visiting your mechanic for a tune up!
