I have been treated for plantar fasciitis myself by Mr Neil-Ascher, an osteopath who developed a new protocol for treatment. This involves the use of acupuncture needles into two or three specific muscles of the foot, and stretching of these muscles and the calf muscles. I do not recommend some of the stretches and other treatments offered by physiotherapists and doctors. My success rate in treating this condition is very high.
The protocol involves between 4 and 8 treatments of medical acupuncture and mobilisation of the affected foot/feet and calf/calves and maybe the knees and hips . These treatment sessions can be either 45 minutes (cost of £50) or 20 minutes (cost of £25).
