Plantar Fasciitis: What Is the Diagnosis and Treatment? is organized by Wolters Kluwer. Dates: Published: Jul 01, 2014 Expires: Jun 04, 2021 Credits: • ANCC 2.5 CH • DC - BON 2.5 CH • FL - BON 2.5 CH Description: This article has been approved by the Orthopaedic Nurses Certification Board for Category A credit toward recertification as an ONC. Purpose of Activity: To provide information about the diagnosis and management strategies for plantar fasciitis. Abstract Foot pain, specifically plantar heel pain, is a common complaint among patients in a podiatric or orthopaedic office setting but may be seen in primary care offices, urgent care centers, or emergency departments as well. There are numerous causes for heel pain, but plantar fasciitis is the most frequent cause. The diagnosis of plantar fasciitis is generally made clinically, but there are many diagnostic modalities that may be used to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment of plantar fasciitis ranges from conservative measures to surgical interventions, but most cases of plantar fasciitis can be managed conservatively. There is no definitive treatment proven to be the best option for plantar fasciitis. Treatment is patient dependent and commonly requires a combination of different modalities to successfully alleviate the symptoms. In this article, plantar fasciitis from defining the disorder, diagnosis, and treatment are discussed. Learning Objectives/Outcomes: After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to: • Recognize the prevalence, presentation and pathology of plantar fasciitis. • Identify diagnostic measures and recommended treatments for plantar fasciitis.

Corticosteroid Versus Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection in Epicondylitis is organized by Wolters Kluwer. Dates: Published: Sep 01, 2014 Expires: Sep 03, 2021 Credits: • ANCC 2.5 CH • DC - BON 2.5 CH • FL - BON 2.5 CH Description: This article has been approved by the Orthopaedic Nurses Certification Board for Category A credit toward recertification as an ONC. Purpose of Activity: To provide information about the efficacy of corticosteroid injections versus platelet-rich plasma injections for the treatment of epicondylitis. Abstract Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is often considered an inflammatory disease characterized by tendon microtears that are followed by an incomplete reparative response that leads to chronic pain and decreased function on the upper extremity. A modality that is commonly used for the treatment of LE is the injection of corticosteroids. Evidence supports corticosteroid injections to be an effective short-term intervention that lacks intermediate and long-term relief as well as having negative effects on tenocyte proliferation, which is essential in the tissue healing process. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been shown to be more effective, providing longer positive results with a lower recurrence rate. PRP's powerful growth factor stimulates tissue repair and protects tenocytes from the cytotoxic effects caused by corticosteroids. Unfortunately, the efficacy of PRP has been questioned because of past study designs. Nevertheless, recent studies provide practice-changing evidence that supports the use of PRP for the treatment of LE. Learning Objectives: After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to: • Identity the prevalence and manifestations of and diagnostic tests for epicondylitis. • Discuss the findings of the literature review comparing treatment options for epicondylitis. Topics: Epicondylitis, Platelet-rich Plasma, Tendon Tears
