    I am a runner and have recently developed problems with plantar fasciitis. I have been told about the use of pulsed electromagnetic therapy as a treatment for the condition. I have had a look for evidence that it works but find mainly testimonials from people. Does anyone know if this type of treatment will actually help? Or is this just another expensive placebo?

    I have heard different accounts for the efficacy of the therapy. I have not used it in my practice, because the success rates are very high for successful treatment using methods I learned in residency- injection therapy, stretching, orthotics. I have treated several athletes at all levels, and competitive runners as well. See a well-trained podiatrist and you won't need new, expensive treatments.
