Today I was on a call with an injured runner who was told she had plantar fasciitis.
She was confused and she started doing some research. She enrolled in the Runner’s Heel Pain Course because she was trying to figure out why her “diagnosis” didn’t seem to match her gut instinct.
She suspected her diagnosis was wrong.
If you have heel pain, and you call for a ride instead of finishing your run, it’s not plantar fasciitis.

Today’s episode comes from a discussion I just had yesterday with an athlete. He had a metatarsal fracture non-union.
A “fracture non-union” can develop when there is a crack in the bone that moving a little bit too much and doesn’t completely heal.
Non-unions can happen if you get a stress fracture, and you keep running on it and you’re tough and you’re strong and it doesn’t really hurt that bad.
If you keep running and repeatedly stress that crack, it can’t heal.
Should I get a CT scan or should I test walking to see if my fracture is healed?
Well, that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.View Details »
