Patient :I have plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I have other issues with this foot that I am wondering might be or are contributing to this issue. 30 years ago I badly dislocated the foot where my foot was stuck inward and the bottom of my foot was parallel to my leg. I had a pulmonary embolism 2 years ago from travel, which I suspect was from the left leg. I have had issues with my downhill ski boots, where i have lost my big toenail on the first day of the season each of the last 4 seasons and only the left one the last two seasons (boots have been adjusted along the way and are good now). A few days after draining my nail bed, the bottom of my foot is painful due to what my massage therapist says is the result of trauma to the toe and there's drainage. I just read this am that there can be some pooling issues in regards to PF. I am wondering if this all ties together and there is some type of therapy/solution more than the massage therapy and chiro/active release that I am currently doing??
