Plantar heel pain syndrome (PHPS) causes suffering and functional impairment in patients. There is, however, quite a bit of confusion and frustration for professionals in their efforts to find a successful therapeutic approach for this syndrome.

This protocol is evidence-based, easily applied, and utilises recognised physiotherapy techniques.


The aims of this programme are for the therapist to:
- consider the evidence in the assessment and management of PHPS
- acquire knowledge and skills in the application of the assessment tool
- acquire knowledge and skills to implement the treatment protocol
