What is Plantar Fasciitis?

The plantar fascia is a thick band of soft tissue that runs through the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. This tissue provides the foot with arch support and helps us walk, stand, run, jump, and do anything that necessitates pressure to be put on the feet. 

When the plantar fascia becomes irritated and inflamed because of the stress it takes on, the condition is called plantar fasciitis, and just about anyone may experience it. 

People who may suffer from plantar fasciitis include:

  • Runners, walkers, and others who participate in high-impact sports and exercise
  • Pregnant women or overweight people
  • Those who regularly stand for extended periods
  • Older people with wear and tear
  • Those who wear improper or unsupportive shoes or shoes in poor condition 
  • Those with structural dysfunction or imbalances in the foot

Recognizing plantar fasciitis can be challenging, as there are several symptoms it can produce. 

You may have plantar fasciitis if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Stabbing and intense pain in the heel of the foot
  • Swelling around the heel
  • Aching pain in the foot
  • Foot pain when pressure is placed on the foot
  • Pain when first using the foot after being sedentary for extended periods
  • Foot and ankle stiffness and loss of range of motion
  • Pain in the arch of the foot
  • A tight Achilles tendon

These symptoms can impact your lifestyle, reducing productivity, preventing physical activity, and even disrupting your sleep. Getting the help your body deserves is closer than you think.
