consistency of plantar fascial thinning

Posted by Ed Davis, DPM on 5/26/05 at 17:33 (175781)

Dr. Z:
On those patients coming back after 20 weeks for a second treatment, I am seeing a very consistent pattern of plantar fascial thinning on sonography. Additionally releif seems to correlate with the percentage of thinning rather than the absolute number of mm thinned. Are you seeing the same thing David?

Yes there is a decrease in thickness with most of the cases that have a reduction with pain

A change in tissue quality as measured by thinning via songraphy is the proximate effect on plantar fasciosis.
