Local infiltration of corticosteroids may precipitate this type of tear. In patients with subcalcaneal pain, the possibility of other causal factors needs to be investigated, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter’s syndrome and stress fractures of the calcaneus.

Journal of Research in Medical Sciences. These changes result in softening and thinning of the plantar fatty pad, thereby reducing its capacity to absorb impacts and its ability to protect the plantar tuberosity of the calcaneus. Plantar heel pain may occur for multiple reasons and release of the lateral plantar nerve branch may be performed alongside the plantar fasciotomy in select cases.

A small number of patients who do not achieve satisfactory relief of their painful symptoms through the abovementioned conservative treatment may benefit from using a nighttime brace. J Foot Ankle Surg. Based on symptoms, ultrasound [1].

It has been estimated that one in every ten people experiences pain in the subcalcaneal region over the course of their lives. Surgical release of the plantar fascia, either through a direct incisional approach or through an endoscopic technique, is the surgical treatment method most frequently indicated for treating subcalcaneal pain that is refractory to conservative treatment.

The ankle and subtalar joints should be examined actively and passively with regard to mobility. In younger planar, the commonest cause of subcalcaneal pain is calcaneal apophysitis Sever’s disease.

Heel pain — operative results. Pain in the heel and bottom of the foot [1]. However, within the last decade, studies have observed microscopic anatomical changes indicating that plantar fasciitis is actually due to a noninflammatory structural breakdown of the plantar fascia rather than an inflammatory process. Symptoms that lead to suspicion of incarceration of the lateral plantar nerve by the abductor muscle of the fifth toe, known as Baxter’s syndrome, 6 cannot be adequately assessed using electroneuromyographic tests.

In cases in which this etiology is suspected, appropriate laboratory tests and radiographic studies should be performed. Conservative treatment of plantar heel pain: Some authors believe that the cause of heel pain is associated with the fatty pad of the calcaneus, which is an important structure responsible for shock absorption when the heel bears weight on the ground.

However, it is important to emphasize that the release should only be partial and should only involve the medial portion of the fascia.

The repetitive microtraumas at the origin of the plantar fascia correlate with the development of periostitis due to traction and microtears of the fascia itself, which result in inflammation and chronic pain. Disruptions in the plantar fascia’s normal faacite movement during standing and walking known as the Windlass mechanism are thought to contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis by placing excess strain on the calcaneal tuberosity.

Other diagnoses that are typically considered include fractures, tumors, or systemic disease if plantar fasciitis pain plwntar to respond appropriately to conservative medical treatments. Plantar fasciitis is usually diagnosed by a health care provider after consideration of a person’s presenting history, risk factors, and clinical examination.

Comparison of custom and prefabricated orthoses in the initial treatment of proximal plantar fasciitis. Received Jun 7; Accepted Jun On rare occasions, intense pain that starts abruptly may occur, caused by traumatic avulsion of the plantar fascia at its insertion into the calcaneal tuberosity.
