The New England Journal of Medicine. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. With aging, degenerative alterations associated with gradual reduction of collagen and fluid cause reduction of the elasticity of the fatty pad.

Magnetic resonance imaging MRI is only rarely indicated for diagnostic evaluation of plantar fasciitis. Pain that patients report as coming from the heel may also be correlated with problems of the lumbar spine. Pain in the heel and bottom of the foot [1].

Plantar fasciitis is a very common painful syndrome, but its exact etiology still remains obscure. The plantar fascia should be palpated in order to determine the area where the pain is located and the possible presence of nodulations. Evaluation of low-energy extracorporeal shock-wave application for treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis.

A fascote study of standing gastrocnemius—soleus stretching versus plnatar splinting in the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Neurological examination of the remaining portions of the limb, along with the lumbar spine, should also form part of the examiner’s routine.

The symptoms may persist for a few weeks or even some years. Endoscopic plantar fascia release. This examination may be useful for early detection of stress fractures of the calcaneus. The management of subcalcaneal pain. The Medical Clinics of North America. Tissue-specific plantar fascia-stretching exercise enhances outcomes in patients with chronic heel pain. Endoscopic plantar fasciotomy for chronic heel pain. The diagnosis is essentially clinical, based on history-taking and physical examination.


Identified risk factors for plantar fasciitis include excessive running, standing on hard surfaces for prolonged periods of time, high arches of the feetthe presence facsite a leg length inequalityand flat feet.

Treatment In the great majority of patients, conservative treatment without surgery is sufficient for enabling symptom relief. Heel spurs, which are located at the origin of the short flexor muscles of the feet, were first correlated as a cause of subcalcaneal pain in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Review.

Most have not been adequately investigated and fasciite is little evidence to support recommendations for such treatments. American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Radiographs of the foot and ankle while bearing the body’s weight should be produced in anteroposterior APlateral and axial views of the calcaneus fasfite order to investigate information relating to the bone structure and the biomechanical state of the foot and ankle, and plnatar to detect any presence of spurs or calcification along the medial tuberosity of the calcaneus. Abstract Plantar fasciitis is a very common painful syndrome, but its exact etiology still remains obscure.

Fascite plantar: o que é e sintomas

These changes result in softening and thinning of the plantar fatty pad, thereby reducing its capacity to absorb impacts and its ability to protect the plantar tuberosity of the calcaneus. Clin J Sport Med. Corticosteroid injections are sometimes used for cases of plantar fasciitis refractory to more conservative measures. The tarsal tunnel should also be palpated in order to investigate Tinel’s sign or an inflammatory process that involves the tibial nerve, lateral or medial plantar nerves and calcaneal nerves.


The ankle and subtalar joints should be examined actively and passively with regard plantag mobility. Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. After approximately 40 years, the plantar fatty pad starts to deteriorate, with loss of collagen, elastic tissue and water, which gives rise to diminished pad thickness and height.

The heel pad in plantar heel pain.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ESWT in patients with chronic proximal plantar fasciitis: Local infiltration of corticosteroids may precipitate this type of tear.

A study of the elastic properties of plantar fascia. From there, the fascia extends along the sole of the foot before inserting at the base of the toesand supports the arch of the foot. During walking movements, the fascia is subjected to repeated traction forces with each step.

Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. Recent studies have emphasized that the first line of conservative treatment should include a home-based program of exercises to stretch the plantar fascia.
