MRI results question

Posted by Tanya D on 11/10/03 at 19:57 (136995)

Hi. I received my MRI results and I am waiting to see a specialist. I am just curious what the treatment options are. Here is what the MRI says I have: Moderately severe plantar fasciitis. Mild reactive edema within the plantar aspect of the calcaneus. Also, tendinosis with intratendinous vertical split invloving the distal posterior tibial tendon. I am concerned that they will take me off work because I have to walk about 3-4 hours a day. What do you think? And the other question I have is if a vertical split is the same thing as a tear?

Thank you
