What is Plantar Fasciitis?

You Can Move Past The Pain Of Plantar Fasciitis

People who suffer from daily discomfort in the heel and bottom area of the foot often have a condition called plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the thin muscle band (plantar fascia) between the heel and toes that prevents arches from collapsing.


Typical symptoms include a stabbing or burning pain in the heel or bottom area of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is often most severe in the morning, subsides as the foot limbers up, then returns after long periods of standing or sitting.

If left untreated, acute plantar fasciitis can progress into a chronic degenerative condition called plantar fasciosis (or fasciopathy) where foot pain strikes anytime while sitting, standing, walking, jogging, or playing sports.

Treatment is Available

Steps can be taken to prevent this condition from recurring or developing into plantar fasciopathy. In most cases, plantar fasciitis can be overcome without invasive treatments.
