It’s estimated 20% of patients who present at podiatry clinics complain of heel pain; a perfect reason as to why you need to watch Eileen Dolan’s Firefly Summit rapid-fire presentation.
Confusion Treating Plantar Pain
Discover why there is a school of thought suggesting plantar fasciitis should be categorised as two separate conditions. With a myriad of treatments available, coupled with a lack of consensus from guidelines on how plantar fasciitis should be treated, Eileen explores injectable treatments, providing a systematic review of botox and PRP.
Despite the many treatment options available to the podiatric practitioner, Eileen says that 80% of plantar fasciitis conditions resolve within 12 months with conservative therapies – when the patient follows prescribed strengthening and conditioning exercises.

ABOUT THE FIREFLY SUMMIT 2017
When we designed the Firefly Summit 2017 we wanted to create a podiatric event like no other. We invited 11 female and 10 male speakers to Sligo. Selected for their expertise and hands-on experience, these top clinicians collaborated on topics to deliver world-class podiatric presentations communicating their ‘clinical gold’ to the Summit delegates.
It wasn’t all podiatric talk. To keep things interesting, all 200 delegates and speakers immersed themselves in the beauty of the wilds of Ireland’s north west coast, taking part in surfing, hiking, stand up paddle-boarding and seaweed baths – WOW!
