  Title Alternative management of plantar fasciitis: A case report
Journal J Int Acad Neuromusculoskel Med. 2020 Dec;17(2):3-14
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the management of chronic plantar fasciitis in 44 year-old female using a multimodal treatment approach, including cupping therapy.

Clinical Features: A 44-year-old female presented to a hospital-based chiropractic clinic with a chief complaint of bilateral plantar fasciitis. Due to the nature of the patient’s occupation, she stood for 12-14 hours at a time and had not found relief with traditional plantar fasciitis management strategies.

Intervention and Outcomes: The use of cupping therapy, in combination with instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation and manipulative therapy for plantar fasciitis management provided in a hospital-based chiropractic clinic resulted in subjective improvements in pain during weight bearing and ambulation. Treatment occurred 2 times per month for two months, and then once every 6 weeks for 12 weeks, for a total of 6 visits

Conclusion: The use of a non-traditional management strategy, including moving cupping, resulted in symptomatic relief and improved activity tolerance for a 44-year old female with chronic plantar fasciitis. This report provides a case for the use of alternative management strategies and suggests the need for further research in this area.
