    When I was in practice, in the few cases that were unresponsive to conservative treatment (and 4% ethanol injections for neuritis of the first and/or second branch of the medial calcaneal nerve) , I would take an MRI. The results showed bone marrow edema and mucoid degeneration of the plantar fascia.
    To address this I would surgically remove the spur and have the hospital spin the blood and inject the platelets into the plantar fascia. I had one failure early on as the patient walked almost immediately after surgery.
    After that, I would immobilize the patient for a month to allow the plantar fascia to heal.
    Years ago, there was a minimal incision surgery that was used for plantar fasciitis in which they drilled seven holes into the calcaneus which was based on an Egyptian procedure. It was used for a while until there was a rash of calcaneal fractures. The theory had to do with increasing venous supply. I think it helped in those cases with bone marrow edema.
