Plantar fasciitis is a common condition affecting over a million people in the United States a year. It can significantly affect one’s ability to walk. Often, your  doctor may have prescribed various treatments such as arch supports, cortisone injections, physical therapy, different types of foot exercises and simply rest which have not helped. 

Recently, a new type of treatment has become available which holds promise. It involves ultrasound technology. Before this procedure is done, tests such as an ultrasound or MRI may be done to determine the extent of the damaged tissue. Basically, the treatment with ultrasound, which produces heat, breaks down the affected area which is then cleared away.  You should find a doctor who is familiar with this procedure who can explain the process in detail before considering this treatment.
