One out of ten people in the U.S. experience persistent pain along the bottom of the foot, a condition known as plantar fasciitis. In this country alone, outpatient clinics receive over one million visits per year from people seeking help for this type of foot pain.
Updated clinical practice guidelines present evidence that strongly supports a combination of manual therapy and exercise for plantar fasciitis. Current research states that patients who received manual therapy as part of their treatment average fewer visits and have a lower cost of care.
