What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar FasciatisThe plantar fascia is a connective tissue band that originates from the bottom of the heel bone and continues to towards the toes. Plantar fasciitis is a condition where the plantar fascia becomes torn and inflamed at places resulting in heel pain. It is one of the most common reasons for heel pain. It is a result of either a compression or traction injury. It is common among people who play running and impact sports, especially the ones that make use of toe running more than heel running. It is also found common among people who have poor foot biomechanics, weak foot and flat feet being the common causes of plantar fasciitis.

Some of the most common symptoms of plantar fasciitis include

  • Pain in the foot arch
  • Pain under the heels
  • Pain worsens after resting or in the morning
  • The pain is worse when you take the first step but betters as the motion continues
