Plantar Fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation to the thick band of tissue at the bottom of the foot, known as the plantar fascia.  This band of tissue begins in the heels and connects in the toes. Plantar Fasciitis often results from overuse and is especially common in athletes due to repetitive strains to the tissue. Over time, the fascia becomes inflamed due to repeat tearing and stretching. Other risk factors for Plantar Fasciitis include having a high arch in the foot, obesity and tight calf muscles.

If you have Plantar Fasciitis you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Pain in the foot (that is often worse in the morning or at night)
  • Difficulty bearing weight
  • Pain when trying to stand up after being seated
  • Pain after exercise
