Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of score value on the visual analogue scale for pain during weight-bearing in the last 48 hours in week 6. "Responder" is defined as a reduction in score value of ≥ 50% [ Time Frame: Week 6 after injection versus baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Gerbershagen Score [ Time Frame: Week 0, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pain intensity on the Visual Analogue Scale [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Measurement of pressure pain with algorimeter: most severe pain experienced on the medial hindfoot [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Force measurement by Brunner (Grade 0-5) [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Global assessment by the investigator and the patient [ Time Frame: Week 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Tolerance of study drug (recording of drug side-effects) [ Time Frame: Week 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
