One out of ten people who run regularly will experience Plantar Fasciitis at some point in their life. A recently published study in the Foot & Ankle International Journal compared steroid injections to manual therapy and exercise for relief of this condition. Both groups achieved significant improvements in function and pain at 3, 6, and 12 weeks with outcomes favoring the steroid injections. Beyond the three month mark, and out to the final follow-up of one year, only the patients that received manual physical therapy and exercises continued to exhibit reduced pain and improved function. These results indicate the importance of manual PT treatment and exercise as a long term solution to Plantar Fasciitis pain.
