Inflmmation - How to test for???

Posted by EKC on 10/29/01 at 13:11 (063761)

OK, so we all know that PF is inflmmation of the Faschia.
Various physical therapies & drugs are supposed to lessen the inflammation.
My question is, is there a test to determine how much inflammation there is?
I know 'pain' is a test, but I'm trying to stay off my feet, and stay out of the
pain cycle. So how do I know if the inflammation is decreasing (from PT and drugs)?

I think only each individual is able to tell if the inflammation is down. I doubt there's a way to tell from the outside.....
Maybe by touch? Massage? How it feels?
That's your best bet.
