Brief Answer: It will not cure disease but will halt the progres Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us, I have studied your case with diligence. In plantar fasciitis there is inflammation of plantar fascia which is usually degenerative. Tricort injection will reduce inflammation and pain due to stretching of planter fascia. It will not cure disease but will halt the progression and further damage. Pain may return after few months of injection. Start plantar exercises consulting physiotherapist and plantar tapping may also help. Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. Wishing you good health. Take care
