Plantar Fasciitis: Prevention


Medline, CINHAL and MANTIS searches relating to prevention of plantar fasciitis (PF) returned only a handful of references. Plantar fasciitis is a common condition which is responsible for 1% of all visits to orthopedic surgeons and accounts for 15% of adult foot pain complaints. It is known for its recalcitrant nature and lengthy recovery time.
