Plantar Fascial Ruptures: A Video and A Comment

Please watch this video about plantar fascial ruptures. This is a good anatomical lesson, but there is so much more to treatment for the majority of patients. I find some patients do not respond well after their initial period of removable cast or bike shoes with embedded cleats and Quick tape from At this time, you have to customize the arch support with functional orthotic devices, and probably add PT, shockwave therapy, and/or PRP injections. Different doctors in your area may be more skilled at any of these treatment components and you need to search them out. Surgery I believe is in the 1% of patients who tear the plantar fascia from partial to complete.
