About Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. If you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, you know just how much it can affect your day-to-day activity.
From your first steps in the morning to your mobility throughout the day, you may notice stabbing pain that can lead to decreased mobility and damage within the joints.
Understanding Plantar Fasciitis can help prevent further damage
The Plantar Fascia is the thick tissue that connects the heel to the toe bones and creates the arch within the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation and swelling of the arch. The injury is often caused by tension to the arch, which typically acts as the shock absorber of the foot. If the tension is too much for the area, small tears can form in the fascia that increases in severity with repetitive movements.
