I think the message here is that there is no golden bullet. There is no single thing that will work for all. There isn't a guaranteed fix available from physios and medical practitioners.
the heel drop protocol is usually one of the first things recommended to me by other runners, physios, and surgeons. To give things a chance, stop running and follow the protocol religiously. We are not talking days here, we are talking weeks. Sometimes it worked out for me, other times it didn't. If it doesn't then there are plenty of other fixes available with varying odd of success.
