Now, you see an older, age 67, overweight man w/ a BMI of 34 who complains of disabling, sharp heel pain every time his foot strikes the ground. The pain is worse in the mornings, preventing him from putting any weight on the heel. X-ray films show a bony spur matching the location of his pain, and physical examination shows exquisite tenderness to direct palpation right over that heel spur. Furthermore, when the ankle is dorsiflexed, the entire inner border of the fascia is tender to palpation. Pathology, please? 1-Epiphysitis of the calcaneus 2-Achilles tendon Bursitis 3-Tibial nerve lesion 4-Plantar fasciitis 5-Talus fracture 6-Osteoarthritis 7-Osteogenic sarcoma
