Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the thick band of tissue, fascia, at the bottom of your foot. It runs from heel to toes. This inflammation can make every step painful to excruciating. You may start limping, and putting more stress on your other knee and hip.
Plantar Fasciitis causes pain in your heel that is usually worse when you take your first steps in the morning, or after you have been sitting for a long time. Movement tends to help until it gets excessive and then the pain intensifies.
There are many different possible causes: running, over weight, standing for long periods of time particularly on concrete flooring. Having very high or very low arches can also put additional stress on the fascia of your foot. Most often there is more than one cause of Plantar Fasciitis. It used to be thought that heel spurs were the cause of the inflammation, but now doctors know that heel spurs are a result of inflamed fascia.
