Foot exercise plus education versus wait and see for the treatment of plantar heel pain (FEET trial): a protocol for a feasibility study.

J Foot Ankle Res 2020 May 8;13(1):20. Epub 2020 May 8.

School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, 4072, Australia.

Background: Plantar heel pain (PHP) is present in a wide range of individuals and creates significant burden to quality of life and participation in physical activity. The high recurrence rates and persistence of PHP suggests current management options may not address all potentially modifiable factors associated with the condition. Reports of intrinsic foot muscle (IFM) atrophy in individuals with PHP, together with biomechanical evidence of their important contribution to optimal foot function, suggests that an intervention focused on IFM training may be beneficial in managing PHP.

Foot Ankle Int 2020 Mar 6;41(3):267-274. Epub 2019 Dec 6.

Orthopaedic Department, Hospital del Mar, Universitat Autonoma Barcelona (UAB), Barcelona, Spain.

Background: Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of foot pain. If conservative treatment fails, there is no consensus as to the best surgical management for recalcitrant plantar fasciitis (RPF). The aim of this study was to compare the results obtained from proximal medial gastrocnemius release (PMGR) with those obtained from open plantar fasciotomy (OPF) in terms of pain, satisfaction, health-related quality of life, and American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) score.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Nov 26;12(11). Epub 2019 Nov 26.

Orthopaedics, Haaglanden Medisch Centrum Antoniushove, Leidschendam, The Netherlands.

A 61-year-old mountain hiker presented with acute pain of the medial-plantar aspect of the right foot. As the location, intensity and acute onset of the pain were atypical for fasciitis plantaris, an ultrasound was performed. This demonstrated a segmental plantar vein thrombosis (PVT), which was confirmed on consequent MRI. Read More

Coccydynia relieved by a tarsal tunnel block: a case series.

Authors:
Amjid Hammodi

J Med Case Rep 2019 Nov 21;13(1):339. Epub 2019 Nov 21.

, Baghdad, Iraq.

Background: This case series describes, for the first time, to the author's knowledge, a novel treatment for coccydynia. Tarsal tunnel block with lignocaine only brought relief of chronic coccydynia lasting more than 6 months in three patients. The author adopts the theory that the myelin sheath of the posterior tibial nerve will convey the lipid-soluble lignocaine upward toward the dorsal root ganglia and the nerve roots of the lumbar spine through the uninterrupted myelin sheath, which is itself mainly formed of lipids.

Role of mechanical factors in the clinical presentation of plantar heel pain: Implications for management.

Foot (Edinb) 2020 Mar 3;42:101636. Epub 2019 Sep 3.

Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (Randwick and Westmead), University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia; Musculoskeletal Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Plantar heel pain is a common musculoskeletal foot disorder that can have a negative impact on activities of daily living and it is of multifactorial etiology. A variety of mechanical factors, which result in excessive load at the plantar fascia insertion, are thought to contribute to the onset of the condition. This review presents the evidence for associations between commonly assessed mechanical factors and plantar heel pain, which could guide management. Read More

The Effects of Acute Neonatal Pain on Expression of Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone and Juvenile Anxiety in a Rodent Model.

eNeuro 2019 Nov/Dec;6(6). Epub 2019 Oct 10.

Department of Psychology, University of New England

Premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) may be subjected to numerous painful procedures without analgesics. One necessary, though acutely painful, procedure is the use of heel lances to monitor blood composition. The current study examined the acute effects of neonatal pain on maternal behavior as well as amygdalar and hypothalamic activation, and the long-term effects of neonatal pain on later-life anxiety-like behavior, using a rodent model.
