My right Plantar Fascial band ruptured yesterday. I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen and if so, what should I expect in terms of recovery time and treatment.

This shit HURTS like nothing I have ever experienced!!!

No, but one of the guys I played soccer with had the tendon on top of his foot tear and it was about 6-8 weeks recovery.

I bet it hurts like hell. I had heel spurs and they were really painful. Number 3 below helped me..

Plantar Fascia Exercise #1 --Stand about two to three feet from a wall. Next, lean towards the wall, keeping your knees straight and your heels flat on the ground. When doing this exercise you should be able to feel the muscles in your calf and the Achilles tendon begin to tighten. You should hold this position for about 10 seconds and repeat this exercise several times. By doing this exercise, the calf muscles and Achilles tendon can become more flexible and stronger in order to prevent further injury and heel pain.

Plantar Fascia Exercise #2 --Sit in a chair and have your knees bent at 90 degree angles. While keeping the heels of your feet flat on the floor, raise the foot upwards. Like Plantar Fascia Exercise #1, you should be able to feel the calf area tighten up. This should be repeated at least several times a day to improve flexibility and strength.

Plantar Fascia Exercise #3 --While sitting, use a tennis ball or rolling pin to gently roll along the bottom of your feet. This is an easy way to stretch the plantar fascia ligament.

These plantar fascia exercises can become especially effective when used with other treatment methods for plantar fasciitis. The first method should be rest and refraining from the physical activities that may have caused your specific case of plantar fasciitis. In addition, one of the most effective ways to treat plantar fasciitis is by using an orthotic shoe insert such as our heel pads, heel seats, and arch supports. Our orthotics physically re-stretche the fascia ligament while you move and also provides acupressure and structural support in the areas of the foot that require the most attention in order to help reverse the condition. When used in combination with an effective orthotic, these exercises can significantly improve the injury that you may be suffering from and also provide long term prevention against reoccurrences.

Yes I have, it hurt, a lot. I was in the Navy and underway at the time. I didn't let it heal the way I should have and the pain dragged on for 5 or 6 months. Are you just copying me or something??? Do you need to see my medical record to see what is next on the list???:raspberry:

Thanks guys. I was afraid of that. I cannot do the exercises until it heals.

When we got back to Norfolk after that deployment they made me some special insoles..... or as I like to call them.... feet torture devices!! They did nothing but aggrivate the injury. Oh and next on the list I think was a tear in the corneal tissue. You think the foot thing is painful...:no:



and next time you break in, please feed the cats.:cool:
