Follow-up Q. for doctors regarding scar tissue (thanks!)

Posted by marre on 3/02/05 at 13:34 (170284)

I posted a question about PF recovery and a painful lump on the bottom of my foot last week. Went to the doctor today and because it is right where the fascia attaches to the heel, he thinks it is scar tissue from a tear. Advised me to ice, massage, stretch, basically what I've been doing. Q for you is: do you think vigorous massage, which is rather painful, would help break this up if it is scar tissue? I have done the golf ball rolling technique and find it makes my foot pretty sore, but if it will help, I will keep at it.

Thanks!
