TThe MRI showed two tendons (flexor digitorum brevis and plantar apneurosis tendons) are strained, and the ligament(s?) supporting my arch (spring ligament I believe) are sprained. He said it is more or less acute PF that shouldn't last like the chronic kind does.<br><br>
The treatment is ice, elevate, anti-inflammatories, continue swimming and cycling. When it's not painful I can do elliptical, walking, light running (preferably treadmill) to exercise but I have to stop if it hurts or if it's painful after. (It is definitely still painful.)<br><br>
I will go for some PT, but couldn't get in until a week from Monday (4/2).<br><br>
The Dr's best guess was it will take 3-4 weeks to heal. Of course, I got the "Were you planning on running any more marathons?" and look of skepticism (not because of the injury, he said, but because "why anyone would want to do that"<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">.

Thanks sierra.<br><br>
My birthday is in a little less than a month and I think going for a pain-free run would make a lovely gift! (Maybe even an early gift ...)<br><br>
Not sure about any races at this point. That's probably premature, but hard to let go of all the great training I put in.

Still achy, not as bad as the race day but bad enough to limit some activites (including some yoga/pilates stuff). I'm stepping up my icing regimen.<br><br>
I'm fighting off the blues about it, too. But that's not productive and of course I WILL be back.<br><br>
I'm starting to wonder if heat and/or arch supports would be helpful at this point.

Jen, I'm thinking about calling the ART guy today. He's an hour away, so it's a bit of a time issue to get to appts. My massage therapist got in to the injured area on Tuesday and that actually felt pretty good. I thought I'd be kicking her!<br><br>
Next week is PT and a podiatrist appt. to see if I should go with some orthotic or arch support device.
