In brief: OMM

Osteopathic manipulative medicine can be very effective in treating pain in the feet.
A variety of manipulative techniques may be brought to bear but especially the relatively new modalities in the fascial distortion model have been particularly helpful for plantar fascitis. You can also use pulsed electromagnetic therapy and or kinesio taping to help with plantar fascitis.
