Question: A pipeline inspector calls his supervisor at the main office to report an injury. The pipeline inspector alleges falling into a manhole and developing pain in his heel. He is evaluated by an occupational health doctor who diagnoses the employee with plantar fasciitis and opines that the condition is degenerative (developed over time) and not related to the fall. The doctor then goes on to prescribe anti-inflammatory prescription medicine along with stretching treatments to treat the condition. Is it recordable?
