*The Prospective Evaluation of Invasive and Non-invasive Treatment Protocols for Plantar Fasciitis. Awbrey B.J., Bernardone J.J., Connolly T.J. Rehabilitation R&D Progress Reports.
The investigation noted a consistently high number of patients within their outpatient practices who were suffering from disabling fasciitis. They also found that each investigator had been prescribing a totally different, but standard, invasive or non-invasive treatment for the condition. In light of the high cost of custom orthoses and the morbidity of surgery, the investigators sought to prospectively investigate effective treatment for plantar fasciitis. The purpose of this study is to identify a clinically successful yet cost-effective conservative treatment for plantar fasciitis.
The results would indicate that a relatively inexpensive anatomic stock orthosis of the type used in this study provided a marked amount of relief from the disabling symptoms of plantar fasciitis by one month, and nearly complete healing by three months. This positive response to treatment was essentially no different from those patients treated by the additional and invasive use of steroids or lidocaine, although all patients who wore an orthosis were significantly improved over the baseline comparison group, who were prescribed a standard series of exercises that are commonly recommended for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. The preliminary findings of this ongoing study lead us to conclude that the use of the stock anatomic orthosis would be the most simple, costeffective, and clinically effective treatment for the disabling disorder of plantar fasciitis.
