Spelling of search terms? Richard James Clark, Integrative Healthcare 27 July 2015 Thank you for this initiative - a very interesting paper. I note that your searches and paper consistently used the spelling 'faciitis'which I have not seen before. The variants I am familiar with are 'fasciitis' and 'fascitis'. A quick google just now (in the UK) gave about 1,550,000 hits for 'plantar fasciitis'; 272,000 for 'plantar fascitis'and 87,400 for 'plantar faciitis'. I wonder if your conclusions would be different if you searched for the more common spellings. Competing interests None. Currently reviewing treatments for plantar heel pain.
