plantar fasciitis, your doctor will ask questions
about your symptoms and your past health. He or she will also do a
physical exam of your feet that includes watching you
stand and walk.
X-rays aren't helpful in diagnosing plantar
fasciitis, because they do not show ligaments clearly. But your doctor might
take X-rays if he or she suspects a
stress fracture, bone cyst, or other foot or ankle
bone problems. X-rays may show whether a
heel spur is present, but a bone spur does not
necessarily mean that a person has plantar fasciitis.
If you've been diagnosed with an acetabular labral tear, your doctor will probably start with conservative treatment. He or she may recommend using painkillers and resting the hip. However, it’s unclear how well this approach works in the long run. Most of the labrum gets little to no blood flow, making natural healing difficult or even impossible.
Physical therapy may help an acetabular labral tear. You can learn to avoid putting too much pressure on the joint while building muscle strength.
diagnosis is not clear, you may have other tests. Tests that are done in rare
MRI, blood tests, bone scans, and vascular testing,
which can evaluate blood flow in the foot and lower leg. If your doctor
suspects nerve entrapment, you may have neurological testing.
