plantar fascitis

Posted by terry b. on 3/07/03 at 10:38 (112120)

can this problem be from an acute injury, that possibly tears the tendon and then progresses to plantar fascitis? Such as jumping down from something?

I,m looking for some kind of connection to an acute injury to this diagnosis.

thank you,

Most plantar fasciitis occurs with chronic repetition however acute injury can and does cause plantar fasciitis.
