Not unusual.: Making the diagnosis of plantar fasciitis is not all that difficult. What is a problem, however, is coming up with a treatment regimen that works for every patient. Shoes, stretching, ice, heat, orthotics, injections and God knows whatever are all used and sometimes work. The problem is, they just don't work all the time. A second opinion might help to see if something was missed.
