Dear Editor,

It was in May 2013 that we had written about heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis [1]. This pain continues to spoil the day for many persons, despite many existing modalities of treatment, and including the one that we had written about. We have named it after our mentor, “Dr. Harendra Kumar Gupta”, and would like to inform the world through you BMJ. This technique is described in greater details in our book that has been published recently, that describes 14 innovative medical techniques for the whole world [2]. All along we have found this technique faring very well so far.

Best regards.
