Plantar plate tear, anyone?

Or is it just me, suffering and in pain for an entire year, with one?

Never heard of a plantar plate tear. Have had plantar fasciitis. Painful and it took a long time to go away.

I've never had one, but I'm familiar with it. It will often lead to surgery (plantar plate repair) if it does not calm down. The surgery is usually successful.

A plantar plate tear is not plantar fasciitis. Apparently I'm not a candidate for surgery. I'm more of a candidate for suffering. Argh.

Yes. Plantar fasciitis is usually painful in the heel and plantar plate tears are in the forefoot, just behind the toes. The second toe (next to the big toe) is the most common. Too bad you are not a candidate for surgery.

Yup I've had a plantar plate tear plus second toe seems to be dislocated.. I think it was caused by peddling in too-tight sneakers with cages on the pedals. May have compressed the toes leading to this problem. Looking at surgery vids on youtube scared me away.. I can ride with no problem but it has led to some balance problems when walking, feels like I'm walking on something that's stuck in the bottom of my shoe. Oh well.. getting old sucks..
