Spontaneous distal rupture of the plantar fascia

Spontaneous distal rupture of the plantar fascia Spontaneous ruptures of the plantar fascia are uncommon injuries. They typically occur at its calcaneal insertion and usually represent a complication of plantar fasciitis and local treatment with steroid injections. In contrast, distal ruptures commonly result from traumatic injuries. We describe the case of a spontaneous distal rupture of the plantar fascia in a 48‐year‐old woman with a low level of physical activity and no history of direct injury to the foot, plantar fasciitis, or steroid injections. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Clinical Ultrasound Wiley

Abstract

Spontaneous ruptures of the plantar fascia are uncommon injuries. They typically occur at its calcaneal insertion and usually represent a complication of plantar fasciitis and local treatment with steroid injections. In contrast, distal ruptures commonly result from traumatic injuries. We describe the case of a spontaneous distal rupture of the plantar fascia in a 48‐year‐old woman with a low level of physical activity and no history of direct injury to the foot, plantar fasciitis, or steroid injections.
