For sufferers of chronic plantar fasciitis, it appears to not only relieve pain but actually reduces the thickness of the plantar fascia, as measured by diagnostic ultrasound.
I found out about this from a physician in our community who wanted me to try the treatment for his chronic plantar fasciitis. Using our standard ultrasound-guided technique, I did so. Not only have his symptoms resolved, the serial measurement of plantar fascial thickness has shown improvement as well.
Botox is also being studied as a symptomatic treatment for knee osteoarthritis.
It apparently has an effect on nocioceptive receptors (pain receptors.)
