Well covered topic!

Good review of foot biomechanics and physical assessments pertinent to any foot pathology, as well as differentiation of other possible biomedical conditions where plantar fasciitis is a symptom. Good summary of TCM patterns potentially involved in plantar fasciitis, covers a wide variety of treatment modalities including acupuncture, herbs, and dietary recommendations.

The case study was a bit textbook. I think such a clear-cut case in clinical reality is quite rare. More cases with complex overlapping patterns would be appreciated.
