Great Information Sources on Plantar Fasciitis
Sure plantarfasciitis-help is the most extensive and authoritative repository of PF wisdom, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other cool and useful places to go. Our associated PF Facebook page is a useful information station, but Facebook also has forums dedicated specifically to person-to-person information exchange. In these forums, where it’s mostly non-expert plantar fasciitis sufferers talking to each other, one has to be aware that some opinions and recommendations would not be endorsed by medical experts, but it’s just good to hear the experiences of others, and talk to them about it. AND, of course, there are some non-Facebook Web sites where plantar fasciitis fact pages or news items help fill out the latest understanding of this pathology.
