Do you have plantar fasciitis?
(applications currently open)
If you have plantar fasciitis you KNOW how painful it feels.
Like a knife stabbing you in the foot when you step out of bed in the morning.
Many believe they just have to live with it.
But at LSM, we have another idea.
You may have tried other healthcare providers and wonder how we can make a difference – if you’d like to hear from one of our clients who we helped with plantar fasciitis, his story is below.
We’re looking for people who want to get rid of their foot pain, and also help us be able to help more people by demonstrating how effective our protocol for plantar fasciitis is.
Would you like to participate in our group case study?
Since 2010, I’ve developed a specific protocol to help people who suffer from plantar fasciitis – and it has proven very effective with virtually every client I’ve used it on (minus approximately two who didn’t do their self-care).
What do I mean when I say effective?
Well, a minimum of 80% up to 100% improvement.
We'd like to help more people.
Of course, we can’t say that we can help plantar fasciitis because a number of clients over the years isn’t the most impressive claim.
We’ve decided to do a group case study – which is to say, to help 20-30 people who have plantar fasciitis, and record the results.
Then, we’ll publish them.
If we’re able to effectively help the majority of participants, we’ll be looking to publish our results, so we can:
- Help more people with plantar fasciitis
- Teach other practitioners our unique protocol for plantar fasciitis.
Would you like to participate?
- currently have plantar fasciitis symptoms,
- would like to see if our protocol can help you
- want to get a discount on your sessions as a thank you for participating
- want to help other people who have plantar fasciitis
Then we’d love to have you!

Have questions? I've got answers!
In this case, a group case study is where we’re taking on a group of people who all have plantar fasciitis and tracking how our protocol works on them.
By doing it all together, we can present the results together, and identify which results which people had.
Each participant will be in a one to one session with a massage therapist, however – so there are no ‘group’ massage sessions!
The group case study includes 6 x 60 min sessions over a 10-12 week period with one of our trained therapists, along with a home exercise programme for them to follow along each week.
The normal price of a 60-minute session at the clinic is £70, and the cost of our exercise prescription programme is £15/month (or, free included in membership).
We will be charging participants £60/60 minute session and including the exercise prescription software for free.
There are also a limited number of sliding scale options available for people on a low income.
Participants will be asked to:
- Complete an intake assessment of their symptoms including frequency and severity
- Track how they respond after each session
- Complete progress questionnaires at the halfway point of sessions, at the end of sessions, and at 3, 6, and 12 months after the sessions.
- Agree to have their anonymised results included in the case study wherever it may be published.
No – while the majority of slots are in person at our Leyton or Walthamstow locations, we also have a handful of video session slots available.
You can indicate which location you prefer in the application form.
