What is Plantar Fasciitis?
- Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick tissue band called the plantar fascia that stretches along the bottom of the foot from the heel to the toes.
- A typical plantar fasciitis symptom is sharp pain on the bottom of the foot close the heel, happening when you step and/or stand.
- This occurs with increased tension/stress due to the plantar fascia absorbing shock while you walk. Frequent stretching and tearing can cause inflammation in the fascia.
- You are at risk for long-lasting heel pain if plantar fasciitis is ignored.
- Stretching and exercises are usually not helpful if your plantar fasciitis heel pain has been ongoing for 3+ months.
