Is There Scar Tissue Associated With Achilles Tendonitis
Possibly yes: Signs of inflammation such as swelling, warmth, and pain occur in a person with achilles' tendonitis. Damaged tendons can become calcified (get deposits of calcium), thicker than normal, less elastic (not as stretchable), and fibrotic (form scar tissue fibers). Tendon rupture occurs when a sudden shear stress force is applied to an already inflamed or damaged tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
MRI read Full-thickness biceps tendonitis tear. Is this term means a major tear? No discoloration, swelling or harsh pain associated.

Have ankle pain, X-ray reveals scar tissue from a decades-old injury. Are there non-surgical ways to reduce or eliminate the scar tissue?
Yes: The anterior tibial tendon is a major tendon from the leg that supports the midfoot or arch area. If this tendon looses function the foot can flatten and this will increase tension or stress on the plantar fascia or increase the likelihood of plantar fasciitis. In addition to addressing the tendon rupture, foot orthotics can help improve the biomechanics of the foot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Plantar fasciitis can respond to taping of the arch and foot despite the presence of a bone spur. Many times the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis comes not from the bone spur itself, but from the straining of the plantar fascia (the band of ligaments that go from the heel to the forefoot.) taping is certainly worth a try but be sure to consult with your physician to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can morton's neuroma (absence of tight fitting shoes history) develop as result of a trimaleolar ankle fracture? What criteria relates it to injury
Morton's neuroma: Unlikely, but a trimalleolar fracture can cause a change in one's gait and since a neuroma is an inflammatory problem of the nerve due to irriation (could be b/c of shoes, or an altered gait pattern) there may be a link, again it's very unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
