Have foot pain and not sure how to fix it?


I’ve posted on this before – 

Here are a couple more studies showing that Low Level Laser and Shock wave therapy are effective treatments and cortisone injections are not.

“Our study results suggest that both shock wave therapy (ESWT) and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) seem to be effective on pain, foot functions, and fascia thickness in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.”

Sanmak ÖD, Külcü DG, Mesci N, Altunok EÇ. Comparison of effects of low-level laser therapy and extracorporeal shock wave therapy in plantar fasciitis treatment: A randomized, prospective, single-blind clinical study. Turkish Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. 2019 Jun;65(2):184. Link

“Corticosteroid injection is not more effective than placebo injection for reducing pain or improving function (in patients with plantar fasciitis).”

Glen A. Whittaker, Shannon E. Munteanu, Hylton B. Menz, Daniel R. Bonanno, James M. Gerrard & Karl B. Landorf. Corticosteroid injection for plantar heel pain: a systematic review and meta-analysis. BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders. Volume 20, Article number: 378 (2019) Link
