Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Plantar fasciitis is a degenerative condition of the thick band of tissue at the bottom of your foot that runs from your heel to your toes. Doctors once thought bony growths called heel spurs brought on the pain. Now they believe that heel spurs are the result, not the cause, of plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis causes pain in your heel. It’s usually worse when you take your first steps in the morning or after you’ve been sitting for a long time. It tends to feel better with activity but worsens again after you spend a long time on your feet.
