MRI Images of Plantar Fascia with and without Tear
I just sent this to a patient with significant pain in the bottom of her heel (lower right). The MRI on the lower right clearly shows the gap in the plantar fascia not seen in the MRI seen on the lower left (Thanks Cheryl). The arrow on the lower right shows the gap with the dark plantar fascia seen to the right and left of the arrow. The initial treatment is casting in the removable boot and an EvenUp on the opposite side placed on the patient's shoe (upper left). The sunset from June 2009 minutes after my son Steve married Clare in Hawaii (upper right).
