Taping is effective for short-term pain relief. Plantar fascia stretching exercises, when combined with prefabricated insoles and short courses of nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs, are effective for short- and long-term pain relief. For patients with chronic symptoms, newer extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) devices are effective. (SOR B, based on individual randomized controlled trials.)
