AOFAS releases plantar fasciitis guide

The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) teamed up with Consumer Reports Health to produce a patient handout that it released in July focusing on conservative treatment of plantar fasciitis (PF).

The PF handout follows a 2014 AOFAS educational effort, part of the ABIM (American Board of Internal Medicine) Foundation’s Choosing Wisely campaign, including its advice to try six months of conservative care before moving to surgery. The handout is available at foot caremd.org and at consumer healthchoices.org.
