A Great Study on Self-Stretching for Plantar Fasciitis!
One hundred patients who had chronic plantar fasciitis were randomized into one of two treatment groups. All patients received prefabricated soft insoles and a 3-week course of NSAIDs, and they also viewed an educational video on plantar fasciitis.
The patients received instructions for either a plantar fascia tissue-stretching program or an Achilles tendon-stretching program. The patients were re-evaluated after 8 weeks.
