Plantar fascial tear NBA basketball player follow up

Paul Gasol NBA basketball player for the LA Lakers suffered a torn plantar fascia earlier this month. The typical treatment for a torn plantar fascia in professional athletes and recreational athletes is typically a period of immobilization with crutches and a walking boot for 4-6 weeks then aggressive physical therapy.
Paul Gasol for the past four weeks has been non-weight bearing with crutches and will now continue to have daily physical therapy.

The majority of literature doesn't not support surgically repairing the plantar fascia.
We will keep you updated on his progress over the next month.,0,4409235.story
