very informative. gr8 job. i do have a question, however, if the only method of diagnosis available is x-ray, would this be enough to form a diagnosis? what other methods of diagnosis do u suggest or clinical measures to take?

|Here a Plantar Fascial Tear is noted at the attachment into the heel on an MRI. See the disruption of the normal fibres in the area.|
|A negative heel stretch (where the heel drops below the plane of the front of the foot) or prolonged non-weightbearing of the heel (like with jump rope) can produce plantar fascial tearing.|
I will try to produce a video soon on the bowstringing of the plantar fascia to show you. Until then, I found this nice video that demonstrates the plantar fascia bowstringing.
