What is the treatment for plantar fasciitis?

Anything that works: For you. PF is a difficult disease to treat and tends to be recurrent. Some patients respond with minimal treatment and most spontaneously improve or worsen no matter what we do.

See a podiatrist: Clinical examination and symptoms can typically lead the doc to the diagnosis, but an x-ray is the first definitive test to differentiate the two conditions. However, stress fractures don't always show up within the first 2-3 weeks of injury, so subsequent follow-up x-rays may be ordered. By the way, you can have both simultaneously. Get checked.
