Plantar fasciitis is notoriously hard to treat, where people will see multiple providers, including podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons, without relief.

Sometimes, it will help for a few hours or days, but sometimes, the cortisone shot aggravates the heel pain and makes it worse.
Plantar fasciitis causes pain in the heel of the foot. It is caused by an inflammation in the connective tissue in the bottom of the foot. The pain is often most noticeable in the mornings. Progressive flattening of the arches is a primary contributor to this condition, so custom foot orthotics are commonly used to help treat the issue.
