Efficacy of steroids for heel pain confirmed
The efficacy of a single steroid injection for plantar fasciitis has been proven over placebo in one of the few controlled trials of the treatment. Researchers found that visual analog scale pain scores were significantly lower after 12 weeks with both ultrasound-guided and unguided injection of methylprednisolone 20 mg compared with placebo. However, there was no difference in treatment outcomes between the two active treatment groups.
