On a topic dear to your heart by docs close enough to touch it. :-) You know, sounds almost like you wrote this abstract yourself. :-)

Welcome back Elliott. Your right, I should have wrote it. I personally have missed your research and inquiring mind. You highlighted and posted material on many good topics in the past. I hope you continue to do so.

I enjoy searching and reading the various abstracts on a variety of medical subjects. It's almost as good as playing bridge for keeping the gray matter stimulated.

Elliott this makes a lot of sense to me. When I was considering the surgical option I did a lot of research on the various surgeries. Dr. Baxter's procedure basically removes a half moon shape of fasica less than 1/2' across where the fasica attaches to the heel. His goal was not really a fascia release but to relieve some pressure on the Baxter nerve beneath it. It is jus coincidental that a very small release occurs probably less than 10%. I did not want to risk permenent damage where the Doctors for the most part do the release by feel and not visually. Some Doctors I talked to at the time released 100%. The incision is very small and the surgery for the Baxter procedure was probably no more than 20 minutes. When I stretch my toes upwards I can clearly see all the fascia bands. I would never risk a major fascia release unless I was in big time pain and nothing else had worked.
