The management of plantar heel pain with a focus on taping.

This is a pretty old paper now, it was published 15 years ago.

So it is probably shot full of holes as we have moved on from old treatment techniques to newer, more evidence based practices.

I am not convinced ESWT was even in use for plantar heel pain back in 2004.. heck.. I still had a full head of hair.

But.. what this paper does have is a very accurate and didactic description of how I tape for plantar heel pain, a technique that in relation to strain reduction, has been scientifically validated.

There are heaps of phots, so take a look and give it a try!!
