Enhancing your management of patients with plantar heel pain starts with an understanding of the “new protocol” for Plantar Heel Pain Syndrome (PHPS). This course explains how to put this knowledge into practice with a step-by-step approach to the assessment and treatment of the patient. The initial focus is on the interview and physical examination to ensure that the important information is gathered from the patient. Following this, the planning of the initial session, as well as the treatment series as a whole, are discussed, thus providing a framework for the optimal management of patients with PHPS.


The purpose of this course is to discuss the application of the “new protocol” for PHPS, including the assessment and planning of treatment sessions.
