Patient discussion about antiinflammatory
Q. Can anyone suggest a treatment for plantar fasciitis, apart from ultrasound, physio, anti-inflammatory agents? My friend has had Plantar Fasciitis for more than 1 year and has persevered with all the ususal treatments above plus lots of rest from weight-bearing and elevation.
More advanced treatments include steroid-local anesthetics injections, botulinum toxin (similar to botox) injections and surgery.
The prognosis is usually favorable, and most patients achieve relief of the pain.
However, all of the above is just for general knowledge - if you have any specific question, you may want to consult a doctor.
