Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

Sometimes plantar fascia may result from abnormal stress on plantar fascia resulting from muscle imbalances in the lower extremity.

Plantar fasciitis is more common in runners. People who wear shoes with inadequate support also have an increased risk of plantar fasciitis.
