Hello,

I am 60 years old. I have plantar fasciitis from one year and two months. It is getting better, but I wanted a second opinion on my MRI done two months ago. Also, since the past two weeks, I have hip pain from the groin to the outer part of the hip in a semi-circle. It is painful to get in and out of a car or climb stairs. I have been doing Cross-fit gym for the past three years.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • As far as the plantar fasciitis is concerned, there is evidence on the MRI to suggest that there is some edema on the attachment of the plantar fascia on the calcaneum. As you are getting better, not much needs to be done investigations wise but you need to do Achilles tendon stretches, intrinsic strengthening exercises, roller massage, contrast bath, etc.
  • With regards to the new symptoms of hip pain, this can be a simple muscle strain and will settle down in the next few weeks.
  • It could be early osteoarthritis of the hip and will need an X-ray and hip examination by an orthopedic surgeon.
  • It could be trochanteric bursitis and you may need some physiotherapy.
  • You could wait for a few weeks and meanwhile for the symptom, I suggest you take painkiller tablets and do some ice packs.
  • If you are still concerned, please get an X-ray to rule out OA of the hip.
