Acute Vs Chronic Conditions

AMIT Explanation

Acute injuries are injuries or symptoms occurring under six weeks in duration.

Chronic conditions are any injuries or symptoms present for six weeks or longer.

If an acute injury is not corrected within six weeks of occurrence, the central nervous system if forced to adapt other tissues to protect the injured or symptomatic tissue. Eventually, the adapted tissues can become the next site for injury or symptom. A question that must be asked with any symptom; is the problem at the symptom site or is the symptom presenting the site of adaptation?

Acute injury treatment is directed at the site of injury. Chronic conditions often require treatment somewhere else in the body, which is always the area of an old injury. Unless old injuries are treated, the symptomatic area will never heal.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the Plantar Fascia, which runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis are due to small tears in the fascia. Under normal circumstances, the Plantar Fascia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring that supports the arch in the foot. If tension on the bowstring becomes too great, it begins to tear.

Pain may include: pain triggered or worsened within first few steps after awakening, pain after long periods of standing or sitting, pain in the heel of the foot, or foot pain developing gradually throughout the day.

Causes of PCL sprains may include: direct impact on front of the knee, such as landing hard on a bent knee during sports.

AMIT Explanation: The cause of this condition is inhibition of the primary arch support muscles (tibialis anterior, supinator and dorsiflexor divisions, tibialis posterior, tibial and fibular divisions) of the foot. This leads to over stressing of the small flexor muscles of the toes and the plantar aponeurosis. Failure of the supporting muscles allows the foot to over-pronate, adding to the problem. This places all the stress of supporting the arch on the plantar aponeurosis and causes inflammation and break down.
