Plantar Fasciitis

 Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful syndrome of the Plantar Fascia, the thick band of tissue that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. Typical symptoms include pain under the heel and along the raised arch of the foot.

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis include:

  • excessive walking on hard surfaces;
  • shoes with little or no arch support;
  • weight gain; or
  • a sudden increase in activity.

Tight calf muscles can also lead to persistent over-pronation of the foot, causing pain in the Plantar Fascia.

While painful, Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that can be easily remedied with careful treatment and prevention.
