I've had plantar fasciitis for a year now. Nothing seems to help. When am I going to be able to run again?

In brief: ESWT.

If you've tried supportive shoes, inserts, icing, stretching, and oral antiinflammatories for 6-8 weeks straight, you may need cortisone injections or physical therapy.
Check in your area to see if eswt (sound wave therapy) is available, and in rare cases some people do require surgery.
