How easy is it to re-injure a previously torn planters fascia?
Hi, I've just recoved from a battle with planters fasciitis in my left foot after 11 & 1/2 weeks in a protective boot cast which I was put into on Oct. 26th! I have a few questions in relation to proventing a re-injury because it was hell!
1. I was told not to jump or stomp my bad (left) foot, I'm attending a hockey game on Sunday and need to know if I can step on my arch or should I be keeping my foot flat...I will be wearing tough work boots with custom orthotics but still should I stay away from any type of arch pressure until instructed otherwise?
2. How easy is it, or how prone am I to a re-injury, can it still tear easily after it has healed, I was told I can put pressure on it but lately I've been weary walking, almost eggshell like, should I continue to be this causious or just walk normally and put myself at ease?
3. I still have pain in my ankle, and I was told it was due to inflammation as the injury itself has still not fully healed even though the tear has mended. I read that when a torn fascia heals up it is often stronger then it was originally, how true is this?
4. I have been placed on Naproxen for inflammation, however how long does it take inflammation and swelling to heal completely, does it heal microscopically with time? I go back for a follow-up appointment on Feb. 15th so I'm under the assumption that it will take atleast another month to be compleatly pain free is this correct as well?
