    Quick question which I don't have time to research right now so I thought I'd ask if anyone knew off the top of their heads...Have any studies been done to look at whether there are changes in the plantar fascia on MRI consistent with plantar fasciosis in an asymptomatic population? (Similar to MRI studies showing the incidence of disc herniations and bulges in the lumbar spine in an asymptomatic population)...

    Thank you!

    Search for the papers by Scott Wearing. You'll see the results for asymmptomatic feet of individuals with pf and, perhaps, control group results.

    I saw a preliminary paper which suggested the fascia became thicker in age in an asymptomatic population. Also thicker in asymptomatic males than asymptomatic females. Don't know if that study has been published yet though.
