Synopsis: 69 patients with unilateral plantar fasciitis were randomized to receive either low level laser therapy (LLLT) or placebo treatment. The purpose of the study was to determine if LLLT resulted in improved patient pain management compared to placebo up to 8 weeks after treatment. The primary outcome Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 40 patients with chronic unilateral plantar fasciitis, who had failed extensive, traditional, nonoperative management, were randomly assigned into 1 of 2 treatment groups to determine if platelet rich plasma injections effectively treated chronic unilateral plantar fasciitis. Patients either received a single ultrasound guided injection of autologous platelet-rich plasma or a 40 mg injection of DepoMedrol cortisone. The results of Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 54 patients diagnosed with plantar fasciitis were randomized to undergo one of three treatment options: an autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) injection, extra-corporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), or conventional treatment (i.e. stretching exercises). The purpose of this study was to compare pain, function and thickness of the plantar fascia between these treatments. Results from this Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 45 patients with plantar fasciitis (8 weeks to 1 year duration of symptoms) were randomized to evaluate the efficacy of micronized dehydrated human amniotic/chorionic membrane (mDHACM) in the treatment of refractory plantar fasciitis over 8 weeks. Reduction of symptoms was evaluated by The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Hindfoot scale; the Wong-Baker FACES Pain Rating Scale; and QualityMetric’s SF-36v2 Standard Health Survey. The evidence presented Read More »

The results indicate that both groups demonstrated a reduction in pain and tenderness over the 6 month period, though patients who received the corticosteroid injection showed a quicker and greater improvement than the autologous blood group. As a result, Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 30 patients with lateral epicondylitis and 30 patients with plantar fasciitis were randomized to determine the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma injection in the treatment of both conditions. A 1:1 ratio of patients from each cohort were allocated to receive either injection of PRP or corticosteroid, and were followed-up for 6 weeks thereafter in outcomes of pain and function.
