Dr. Ed Davis,
Please tell me where to find info. onthe treatment triad. I do a search and all I come up with is several posts that make a reference to the treatment triad, but none of them explain what it is.

Since no one responded, let me try to help. Dr. Ed Davis is the one who postualtes the triad. So, you might look only for his posts, or ask him directly again to expalain it.
This is from memory and I'm not sure about details. Dr. Davis says triad comprised of problems with inflamation, biomechanics, and tissue quality. Inflamation can be treated with oral medications. Bio mechanics can be treated with taping, orthotics, special shoes. Tissue quality is addressed with ESWT sometimes and other things. He also advises stretching if you have tight gastrosoleus-achilles problem. I may not have all of this straight, but I hope this gives you guidance.
