Plantar heel pain (PHP) is a complex and multifactorial condition with many factors proposed to be associated with it. With the aetiology of PHP still poorly understood, it is shrouded in uncertainty regarding its optimal management. Subsequently, many questions arose during this series on PHP, which can now be answered based on the literature discussed during this series. This final course in the programme on PHP will answer the questions raised while also providing practical demonstrations on the assessment and treatment techniques described in the “new protocol”.


The purpose of this course is to answer typical questions raised about PHP and to provide practical demonstrations of the techniques used in the “new protocol”.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Plantar Heel Pain Conclusions
  2. Practical Demonstrations
  3. Quiz

This is a great course. It gives a nice short practical summary of pertinent things from the series of courses on the new protocol for PHPS.

This course breaks down PHP into very manageable chunks to do anytime of the day even if you only have a spare 20 mins you can get part done
