A good treatment plan can include stretching exercises, good supportive shoes (including arch supports) and antiinflammatories. Sometimes steroid injections or physical therapy is required. Thought this can be stubborn, most cases are resolved before surgery. ...Read more

MRI on foot showed complete tear of central cord of plantar fascia with lateral and medial fascia intact with 2cm fibroma in arch. How to treat this?

Torn Plantar fascia: You should be immobilized for a short time to take pressure off the injury, but this is a ligament tear, and rest and possible anti-inflammatory therapy (including possible cortisone injections) would be of benefit. The ligament does not need to be repaired; in fact, a 'controlled tear' of the tendon is the preferred surgical method for treating plantar fasciitis. You will likely need orthotics. ...Read more
