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
Tried going w/o custom orthotics for a day. Could barely walk-arch pain the next day. Sound like plantar fasciitis? I'm diagnosed but don't understand
Wear orthotics: The orthotics keep your foot in better alignment and give you support. If you don't wear them and also walk in shoes with little support like flats, then you're basically re-injuring your fascia. This process brings back the inflammation and pain ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I switched from custom orthotics to powerstep today due to continued arch pain Dr says strained plantar fasia but now my knee & ankle are killing me?
Break-in period: When switching or when using orthotics for the first time the body needs an adjustment period. Ideally you will use the new orthotics for one hour the first day, 2 hours the 2nd day and you should increase the length of time using the orthotics by an hour each day. Your body should be use to the new orthotics in about a week. That said, why switch from custom molded to over the counter? ...Read more
I was diagnosed with plantar fascitis. Pain in plantar fascia not heel. Started in left foot and now right. Tender when massage. ?
That is consistent: What you are describing can be consistent with plantar fasciitis. Pain can be in the arch and/or heel area. A good treatment plan can include stretching exercises, good supportive shoes (including arch supports) and antiinflammatories. Sometimes steroid injections or physical therapy is required.

I have localized heel pain on the right side of it (not far enough down to be plantar fascia). Could this be a stress fx?
I have a ruptured plantar fascia and am at week 8 and am having swelling and pain. Am I a candidate for pro?
Pro?: Not sure what you mean by "pro." perhaps you meant prolotherapy or prp. These are both regenerative type injections used to heal damaged tissue, and the plantar fascia is a potential location. I recommend that if either is performed, that they be done under ultrasound guidance. Both injections can be beneficial, but work gradually. It may take you up to a year to recover, even with injections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
