Plantar Fascia Rupture

Plantar Fascia Rupture

Usually occurs during propulsion when toes are dorsiflexed – usually notice a ‘pop’ or ‘snap’  inability to bear weight.

Painful at rupture site and on hallux dorsiflexion; some swelling.

Treatment:
Non-surgical. Non-weightbearing cast for 2 weeks  weightbearing in form shoe and orthoses and physical therapy

Recovery can be long.
Plantar fascia may be less flexible  increased risk for plantar fasciitis  use orthoses long term.
