A Clinical Trial of a Multi-element Exercise Program for Plantar Fasciopathy in Workers Required to Stand for Prolonged Periods of Time

This study will examine the effectiveness of a multi-element exercise program in reducing the pain and disability of chronic plantar fasciopathy in a population of workers standing for prolonged periods during their work day.  It is anticipated that results of the study will lead to a significant step in reducing the time lost to injury and improving the quality of life for workers required to spend long periods of time on their feet.
