Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common problem that causes pain under the heel bone often with lengthy walks and prolonged standing. It is most often seen in middle-aged men and women.

Plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that lies at the bottom of the foot. It runs from the heel bone to the toe and forms the arch of the foot. The plantar fascia functions as a shock absorber and also supports the arch of the foot.

Too much pressure over the fascia may damage or tear away the tissue and can be a cause of heel pain. It is also possible that when the plantar fascia gets overstretched or overused repeatedly, there may be irritation or inflammation of the fascia. Inflammation of the plantar fascia causes plantar fasciitis.

Risk Factors For Plantar Fasciitis

  • Obesity
  • Long-distance running
  • Occupations that necessitate walking or standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time
  • Wearing shoes with poor arch support or thin-soled shoes.
