#395 Plantar heel bursitis misdiagnosed as plantar fasciitis

I was just doing a telemedicine call with a runner with a long history of plantar fasciitis, that has not been getting better. She had been doing stretches, icing, and even an injection of corticosteroids around the plantar fascia.

We were doing a second opinion telemedicine call to talk about what’s really going on. We talked about her whole history. She had been keeping track and has kept a pain journal.
