Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It is characterized by a stabbing pain that occurs during your first few steps in the morning. It is caused by the inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Plantar Fasciitis can occur without an obvious cause, although there are some factors that can put you at a higher risk of developing the condition. They are: Age (people between 40-60 are at most risk), types of exercise (ie. long distance running, ballet), foot mechanics (flat foot or high arch), obesity, and occupations that keep you on your feet.
