dc.description.abstractMechanical therapies -- such as taping, tension night splinting, and rigid arch support -- are the most effective treatment for plantar fasciitis (strength of recommendation: A, based on randomized controlled trials). If limited or no improvement is observed after 6 months of mechanical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Orthotripsy) is the next treatment of choice (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials). When mechanical therapies and extracorporeal shock wave therapy have failed for more than 1 year, surgical treatment may be considered (SOR: C, based on a case-series study).eng
