What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of foot and heel pain. At the heart of the problem is the plantar fascia, a fibrous band of tissue that runs from your heel to your forefoot. When this tissue is overstretched, often from fallen arches or inadequate arch support, it can become irritated and inflamed. This results in the painful condition called “plantar fasciitis.”
The first sign of plantar fasciitis is heel pain when you initially stand up. It is usually worse in the morning when you get up. It can be a dull ache or turn into a sharp knife like feeling in the bottom of your heel and foot. If left untreated, the problem can progressively worsen until it becomes difficult to walk.
