Plantar heel pain syndrome (PHPS) is a poorly understood, complex condition. In order to optimally manage PHPS, it is necessary to examine the underlying anatomical structures and establish the relationship between plantar heel pain (PHP) and the tissues involved. This lecture will explore the muscular, nervous and fascial structures underlying the foot and ankle in relation to the most common theories on PHPS (including plantar fasciitis and calcaneal spurs) and the “new protocol” for the management of PHPS introduced in the previous course.
The purpose of this course is to explore the relationship between various anatomical structures and the common theories of plantar heel pain syndrome (PHPS), as well as the new protocol proposed for PHPS.
