Heel Pain: When the Plantar Fascia is Not Involved

Swollen Left Heel on MRI showing Good Robust Plantar Fascia that I thought may be torn

The cause of the pain is an infra calcaneal bursae or bursitis. See the Black lump under the plantar fascia and pushing the normal fat out of the way.

Treatment of this Subcalcaneal Bursitis with be ice massage, off weighting the heel for awhile, very soft cushioning around the heel while cooking and prolonged standing, soft Hannaford based orthotic devices, and PT to try to drive out the inflammation with ultrasound, soft tissue mob, and electric stim and ice.
