Yes you have ruptured or torn the plantar! The key is the pop you feel and sometimes hear that accompanies the injury! I have been recovering from the same injury suffered on the 4th hurdle in gainesville florida on feb 7 and have just started wearing my custom orthotics which help with the fact that my arch dropped. The foot still feels weird after 2 months but I am learning to live with it. I had to miss indoor nationals and am still trying to get back to running full speed. Good luck with the rehab...pick up marbles with your toes, use an elastic band for resistance and move the foot against it etc. As for me I was just getting back on the track, went snow skiing and now have an inguinal hernia that may end my efforts for this year. Not my year..godspeed your healing.

Well i must say that this may be a huge problem to your heel because this might have cause your hard tissue in your heel to break or crack or tear...Well this may occur because you may be use to High heels. You should consult a doctor & start the treatment immediately.
