I am appealing the percentages assigned to the unfit conditions. I was rated 10% for plantar fasciitis. I have 10 years of treatment which has included injections, night splints, insoles, wrapped, meds, shockwave therapy...and I recently ruptured one of them. They both measure via ultrasound near 3 times the normal thickness. I am just unsure as to how for bilateral it would be rated as 10%. What does the person who was rated at 30% or 50% look like? Are they permanently unable to walk at all?You are appealing the "unfit" finding?
I am not your doctor, did the DBQ have you "Diagnosed" as Pes Planus or PF? The diagnosis should determine how you are rated.... you may need to appeal how you were incorrectly rated versus your diagnosis or get more help from someone above my pay grade . Good Luck.The VA is using the pes planus DBQ for some reason
I was found Unfit with severance for PF. I had insoles, injections, physical therapy, then a surgery to release the fascia and a gastric tendon release. 6 weeks after surgery, I ruptured my Achilles. I have permanent nerve damage and still have the PF. I got rated at 20%...they lumped the 4 things together. I was told by my PEBLO that most ortho conditions don’t get more than 20%, and it seems he was right. I’m alright with the severance though...good chunk of change to start my new life withI fractured my ankle and tore 2 ligaments. Had surgery to stabilize my ankle but lost ROM (<10 dorsiflexion). I have plantar fasciitis which I have had injections, electro therapy, night splints, insoles, PT, ruptured my left plantar fascia. I was rated at 10 for each totaling 20% DoD
