What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common conditions related to pain within the foot. It is a condition that requires treatment to rectify and alleviate the pain that is associated with it. Specifically, it is a condition that affects the band that runs between the heel and toes of a foot that causes tension, resulting in sharp feelings of pain through the heel and other areas of the foot. Here we discuss the symptoms, causes, treatment options and how you can make changes to your lifestyle to deal with this condition.

Symptoms

Most people come to our team at Plantar Fasciitis Relief describing a pain within their heel. It is common that this is its worst in the morning after there has been no movement within the legs and our bones and muscles stiffen up. This tends to improve after some light movement, but often becomes much worse after excessive walking or vigorous exercise. The tension within the foot can lead to swelling, causing excruciating pain when any pressure is put onto the heel. This can lead to our clients developing a limp in an attempt to keep pressure off the affected foot.

Causes

Plantar Fasciitis is commonly due to repetitive stress within the foot, commonly within very active people who put their feet to good work on a regular basis. It is also common in people who spend a lot of time standing each day, with increased periods of pressure being held within the feet. This is also common in obese patients as there is excessive weight being held in the feet. This stress, pressure and weight leads to tension and tightness within the muscles, joints and fascia of our foot, causing bad habits to form whilst walking and creating the pain our clients experience.
