Ruptured Fascia??

Posted by Donna M on 7/14/01 at 00:00 (053093)

I have read several posts about the fascia rupturing after cortisone shots. How can you tell or know if it does rupture?

Thank you,

Donna

Cortisone can weaken the tissue, predisposing it to rupture. Some people actually feel a 'twang' when it happens. It does not happen often. I would think the symptoms of the heel pain would suddenly change.

There are good articles on this subject on this web site. Go to the journal section and read about the danges of local steriod injections.
