Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain, accounting for up to 15% of medical foot inquiries. Autologous fat grafting (AFG) is a promising new treatment for plantar fasciitis, whereby the injection of fat may promote a cushioning effect on the heel and reduce plantar pressure, thereby reducing heel pain. We present the case of a patient with chronic plantar fasciitis treated with AFG with significant improvement in foot pain and functional scores.
