Hi! I'm working to develop a 'triage' system, to help people diagnose the source of their so-called plantar fasciitis heel pain. I plan to use response (improved, no change, made worse), as diagnostic tools for a common range of treatments. Instead of saying a method (roller, injection, Podiatrist...) didn't help or it did, the observation would become a diagnostic tool, in my triage map. My background in Bacteriology and Pathology led me to this idea. Thanks for helping, so I can help you rescue yourself, and others, from So-Called Plantar Fasciitis (Morning Heel Pain). kev aka FitOldDog BVSc, PhD, DipACVP, ExFRCPath (have to put those letters, or people don't trust me, even then they might not!).
