Steroid Injections for Plantar Fasciitis

Steroid injections into the Plantar Fascia can be given under ultrasound guidance. They are sometimes used as a short term treatment in Plantar Fasciitis to reduce inflammation and pain.

The disadvantage is that these injections can be uncomfortable and may cause weakening of surrounding tissues, increasing the risk of further damage to the Plantar Fasciitis on return to activity.
