Case
A 29-year-old woman presents to an urgent care center after a fall from the roof of her house, where she was cleaning the gutters. She reports that her right heel began hurting intensely immediately after the fall and that the pain worsened in the time it took for a family member to get her to the center. She cannot bear weight on her right leg. She mentions that she is a runner who often takes part in marathons and triathlons.
