Rupture?

Posted by Dan W on 10/23/99 at 00:00 (011976)

What happens when the fasciia ruptures? I think this might have happened to me after my second injection. Does anyone know?

It happened to me after cortisone shot. My foot felt extreamly stiff and when it happened it felt like a bang and my foot swell a lot and I got an awful pain. Weren't able to walk, even stand on my foot for 6 weeks and then I had surgery and 6 more weeks off work!!! Surgery didn't help.
I think the shot may damaged the fascia, but I don't know.

one of the orthopedic surgeons i visited had her fascia completely tear away from the heel some years ago. i see her at the health club and she seems to do well. early this year i read where one of the NFL football players had his fascia totally tear away from the heel. they said he would be out for 6-7 weeks. from what i have read one needs to worry about how the foot will adapt over time to the loss of support meaning wearing supportative orthosis is probably a must.
