Chronic plantar fasciitis can cause tearing of the fascia. If you experience pain that does not seem to resolve, it is important to have your heel pain evaluated. We see quite a few patients in our office that have had heel pain for months or years and upon evaluation these patients have tears in the fascia.
Additionally, patients that have tried multiple treatments and have not seen much improvement often times have tearing in the fascia. The good news about tearing is we have protocols that can radically improve and promote healing of the tears. If you have chronic heel pain and have seen multiple doctors, the Washington Heel Pain Center can be your last stop.
