Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory condition of the
foot (usually in the heel but can be referred pain) caused by
excessive wear to the plantar fascia that supports the arch or
by biomechanical faults that cause abnormal pronation.
The pain usually is felt on the underside of the heel, and
is often most intense with the first steps of the day. Even
before getting out of bed in the morning! Click Here!
Plantar Fasiitis Cause
It's commonly associated with long periods of weight bearing
or sudden changes in weight bearing or activity or wearing new
Obesity, weight gain, jobs that require a lot of walking on
hard surfaces, shoes with little or no arch support, and
inactivity are also associated with the condition. Even shoes
with good arch support may be the wrong fit for you.
Plantar fasciitis used to be called "a dog's heel" in the
UK. It is sometimes known as "flip-flop disease" among US foot
specialists, foot doctors and podiatrists. The condition
often results in a heel spur on the calcaneus, in which case it
is the underlying condition, and not the spur itself, which
produces the pain. Heel spurs may not be the cause of plantar
fasiitis pain also. Click Here!
