Is peroneus brevis tendinosis and thickening of the central band of the plantar fascia without surrounding edema a serious concern?

I just had an MRI of my left foot and ankle. MRI 3T- Lower extremity W/O contrast . Report states: peroneus brevis tendinosis and thickening of the central band of the plantar fascia without surrounding edema. I am having severe pain on the outside of my ankle and along the side and bottom of my foot. I severely twisted my ankle recently. What does the results of the MRI mean and what is the usual treatment?

Your problem is not a serious concern and most people recover completely in few weeks. Usual treatment is non surgical and can involve immobilization, pain medications and physical therapy.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

yes I had an mri of my left shoulder it says there is moderate ac joint arthrosis and small subacrominal spur and moderate supraspinatus tendinosis and intrasubstance signal bu no discrete tear, mild intrasinatus tendinosis. the subscapularis and teres minor tendons are intact and no muscle atrophy or denervation effect. There is biceps tenosynovitis within the biciital groove there is mild biceps tendinosis without a tear. evalution of the labrum slightly degraded by motion artifact the labrum is degenerated and there is mild blunting anteroinferiorly and intrasubstance signal along the superior labrum suggest low grade partial thickness tear. There is a large joint effusion . Joint capsule is not thickened or detached there is a mild subacrominal/subdeltoid bursitis?? what the heck does all this mean for me????????

I am trying to understand my MRI report of my left ankle, can you help me to figure it out, Thank you:) -, it says: examination of the tibiotalar joint demonstrates extensive arthrosis involving the medial portion of the tibiotalor joint with a long osteochondral defect involving the anterior weightbearing surface of the talus measuring 18 mm and posterior weightbearing surface of the supra-adjacent tibia measuring 14 mm. There is associated subchondral bone marrowq edema. There is osteophytic ridging of the anterior aspect of the medial malleolus with associated ridging of the medial talus. There is extensive bone marrow edema and subchondral cyst formation within the second metatarsal. There is mild bone marrow edema and subchondral formation in the dstal aspect of the cuboid. There is joint effusion. Ligaments: The anterior tobiofibular ligament is intact. The talofivular ligament is not identified and is likely chronically torn. The posterior tibiofibular and talofibular ligaments are within normal limits. The calcaneofibular ligament is likely intact. The deltoid ligament is within normal limits. There is mild to moderate thickening of the tibial spring ligament which is intact. Tendons:There is a mild to moderate amount of fluid in the tibialis tendon sheath. The distal posterior tibialis tendon is markedly enlarged withe intrasubtance signal consistent with severe tendinosis. The flexor digitorum lonus and flexor hallucis longus tendons are within normal limits. There is a realative low lying peroneus longus muscle. The peroneus tendons otherwise within normal limits. There is marked soft tissue surrounding the talocalcaneal ligament consistent with sinus Tarsi syndrome. The Achilles tendon and the plantar fascia are within normal limits.

Hello, I am confused with my MRI report. Please help. What is minimal peroneal tenosynovitis, questionable partial tear in the brevis tendon, small partial intrasubstance tear in the lateral cord origin of the plantar fascia from posterior calcaneal tuberosity. Adjacent prominent soft tissue edema particularly in the proximal belly of the abductor digiti minimi muscle, Prominent marrow edema in the plantar posterior calcaneous adjacent to the plantar fascia region without fracture line, small effusion in the posterior subtalor joint.
