Injection or surgery: I'm assuming after 3 years you have tried pt and antiinflammatories. Draining the knee followed by a cortisone injection (assuming the fluid doesn't look infected) could help.

Tried NSAIDS for plantar fasciitis pain which offered no relief. Is time and ice the best medicine to treat?

Time & ice: are excellent to use for plantar fasciitis.

NSAIDS and local steroid injections can be used, however not always needed. Surgery is not typical. Get better! ...Read more
