Plantar fasciopathy, a common, painful condition of the foot, is often diagnosed by a musculoskeletal physiatrist in an outpatient practice setting. This focused review examines the most recent recommendations for the management of plantar fasciopathy in acute, subacute, and chronic phases. The evidence for treatment with various interventions is discussed, and suggestions for clinical care (along with the respective rationales for those therapies) are provided. The purpose of this review is to enable clinicians to make informed evidence-based decisions about the best available treatments for patients with any phase of plantar fasciopathy. Emerging technologies for the treatment of the condition are also addressed.
