There are a multitude of treatment selections to chose from and if you're reading this, chances are you have not had reasonable satisfaction with the other types. Here's a quick reference to set expectations for treatment selection:
Although Steroid Injections can be helpful regarding masking of pain thus providing a cycle of time for Plantar Fascia Ligament to heal it also comes with risk as well as an enormous cost. Steroid Injections are not intended to provide relief beyond a month. Studies failed to show effective pain relief after three months. What is the risk? Notable risk includes plantar fascia rupture, skin infection, nerve or muscle injury, or atrophy of the plantar fat pad.
Custom Orthotic Devices and Insoles have been demonstrated as an effective method to reduce Plantar Fasciitis pain for up to 12 weeks. The long-term effectiveness of custom orthotics for Plantar Fasciitis pain reduction requires additional study. Orthotic devices and certain taping techniques are proposed to reduce pronation of the foot and therefore reduce the load on the plantar fascia resulting in pain improvement. Improperly sized insoles and orthotics may contribute to other ailments such as back or perhaps hip pain.
Acupuncture is a helpful but not intended to be a long-term solution. The treatment simply blocks pain receptors for a brief period of time and can add up to a significant cost over multiple treatment sessions. Although in some cases with a minor condition Acupuncture has proven effective in small percentages of the population, masking pain is not an acceptable solution to long-term recovery from Plantar Fasciitis.
Stretching Exercises, Rolling Arch over a Bottle are discussed treatments and may provide relief with minor experiences of Plantar Fasciitis in small percentages of the population. No one can argue against the cost but it can be said, "You Get What You Pay For." Not recommended as a stand-alone treatment but can be helpful in conjunction with an effective treatment that does not impair routine, schedule or lifestyle with going through the treatment. Additionally, there is no immediate relief with pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis. One would need to have the threshold and tolerance of pain to cycle through this treatment choice.
Family Doctors, in particular, are not prepared to treat Plantar Fasciitis or any other musculoskeletal condition.
Podiatrists (foot doctors) especially in North America, where podiatrists are mainly focused on surgical procedures often provide poor quality advice about chronic repetitive strain injuries like Plantar Fasciitis, Iliotibial Syndrome, or Shin Splints. In all fairness, a limited few take a special interest in these conditions, but most do not, and the occasional tough case of Plantar Fasciitis is not on their radar - understandable but unfortunate.
Physical Therapist can be the overall best bet for overall Plantar Fasciitis in conjunction with treatments which provide support, stabilization, and elongation of the Plantar Fascia Ligament care but often lack the skill, experience, and ability to treat tough cases.
Loosely fitting Compression Socks, Compression Sleeves or improperly applied wrapping and taping may as well be counterproductive. Treatments which do not address core influences on Plantar Fasciitis are simply a waste of time and money.
I designed my Plantar Fasciitis Remedy specifically to address the core problem which is inflammation caused by micro-tears of the Plantar Fascia Ligament. Without any change in lifestyle or type of shoes worn this is how it works:
Supports Plantar Fascia Ligament when worn with any type of shoe without sacrificing comfort
Stabilizes Plantar Fascia Ligament to provide immediate relief thus affecting lifestyle and routine positively
Enlogation of Plantar Fascia Ligament to expedite healing process naturally with custom controlled compression
These features are necessary to provide an alternative, natural accelerated healing, and elimination of pain treatment. It's all done with comfort, control and without limiting lifestyle or routine.
