This Plantar Fasciitis Injection Ultrasound-Guided Procedure Training provides an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of how to perform ultrasound-guided plantar intrafascial and perifascial injections. Review traditional illustrative anatomy and sonographic anatomy of the plantar fascia and relevant surrounding structures. Explore the use of ultrasound to evaluate plantar fascia pathologies, including plantar fasciitis and plantar fascia tear/rupture, and clinical indications for performing ultrasound-guided injections. Patient positioning, sonographic techniques, and scanning approaches used in performing such procedures are covered, as well as imaging tips, pitfalls, and potential procedure complications.
