The best treatment for planter fasciitis is to do all of the stretches above in the article immediately after you get an ultrasound treatment. The massage to the knotted areas and scarred areas and the intense stretching immediately after ultrasound is the very very best! You can also wear motion limiting shoes with some mild orthotics to start off and graduate to a more pronounced orthotic support. If you cannot cure your planter fasciitis by doing the stretches alone try ultrasound then immediately have the therapist do the stretches and the massage. Your therapist will massage your foot and stretch it and then you will have to stretch it yourself after the therapist finishes stretching it. After two months of doing everything I knew to do on my own I went to get ultrasound massage and stretching and in four short treatments over two weeks I am almost completely healed. Ultrasound is the KEY FOLLOWED by all the massage stretching and other treatments!
