There is a lack of evidence for any of the commonly used evaluation and treatment tools for plantar heel pain (PHP). However, in this course, Bernice Saban uses supporting evidence to discuss a new protocol for the optimal assessment and management of PHP. This course follows on from the literature review series about the risk factors, assessment tools and treatment options for PHP.


The purpose of this course is to introduce a new protocol to help clinicians assess and treat PHP.
