    When does a trend become a "result"? I though a p>0.05 meant that there was a good chance that the results got had a good probablity of happening by chance.

    What mechanism of action is proposed here?.....we could see if meat pies help too...or chicken soup, bound to help. Glucosamine is a I believe a bit of an anit-coagulant.....maybe helps in peripheral flow.....???? some studies just aren't worth the paper they are written on....is this one of those?

    not particularly, research has got a certain criterion that it has to satisfy, and certainly this article has done just that. and to test the null hypothesis that glucosamine supplement over above what the patient is on can be more effective than placebo, standard medical care available for plantar fasciitis.

    take for a example a neurologically induced plantar fasciitis due to baxter's nerve compression, treatment with vitamin B12 complex and folic acid as a nerve enhencement therapy manages to treat the condition. i think this is a good study, well thought off and planned and executed, this is the stuff research is all about and podiatry can do more especially for stubborn conditions such as plantar fasciitis. I think diet will have to be the next step and we will have to treat plantar fasciitis along this line.........whose foot is it anyway
