I got the results of an MRI that was done on my achy right foot. I was suspecting that there was more than one thing going on, they came up with a list of 5.
1) Plantar Fasciitis.
2) Moderate Achilles Tendinosis/Tendinopathy.
3) Mild to moderate Peroneal Brevis and Peroneal Longus Tendinosis/Tendinopathy
4) Deltoid ligament complex sprain. Anterior Talofibular and Calcaneofibular ligament sprain.
5) Varicose Veins at at the medial aspect of the right ankle
Let’s see if I got this straight. I knew, of course that I had Plantar Fasciitis. My concern with it of late is that it is becoming a constant nemesis. I do not feel it so much upon getting out of the bed in the morning. I feel it after going for a run or even after standing around too long in a day.
A Tendinosis is different than a Tendinitis. I tendinitis is pain and inflammation resulting from tendon microtears. It is an acute injury. A tendinitis is more often the result of an overuse injury. The Achilles is on the back of the foot the The Peroneal goes from the outside back of the leg down onto the outside of the foot.
The two sprains are on the outer upper part of the foot. These were not a surprise, but I figured that they should have been better by now.
The Vericose Veins diagnosis was not new either. In fact it has occurred to me that this could be part of the problem. I looked up symptoms for Vericose Veins and achy feet was top of the list…
So, what do I do from hear. My chiropractor has a massage therapist and between the two of them they want to work on the soft tissue to see if they can aid healing while also working on the rest of the leg and back to get them stretched out and functioning correctly.
