  • Cause Of Plantar Fasciitis
    Plantar fasciitis may affect people of all ages. It is an inflammation of the tough, fibrous band of tissue (plantar fascia) that runs from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Plantar fascia is elastic in nature; it stretches and contracts with movement. In addition, a significant amount of shock and pressure from physical activities such as running and jumping or long hours of standing and walking are all routinely absorbed by the plantar fascia. The overload of such activities leads to the development of tear in the fascia, causing pain and inflammation.

  • Plantar Fasciitis
    Plantar fasciitis is a condition affecting the surface of the foot. It is an inflammation of the tough, fibrous band of tissue (plantar fascia) that runs from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Plantar fasciitis results from the development of tear in plantar fascia that leads to pain and inflammation. The pain is very acute while walking for the first time in the morning. It is equally severe while walking after a prolonged rest or after being seated for a long time.

  • Plantar Fasciitis Relief
    Taking the first few steps in the morning is a nightmarish experience for every plantar fascitis patient. The pain is intense at the inner side of the heel and slowly subsides as the day progresses but returns after long hours of standing and walking. The pain is also acutely felt on when an individual resumes walking after a long rest.

  • Plantar Fasciitis Socks
    Plantar fasciitis is a condition in which a person develops intense pain at the inner side of the heel. It occurs as a result of inflammation of the tough fibrous tissue known as plantar fascia. During rest, the plantar fascia contracts back to its original shape. As soon as weight is put on the feet, the fascia begins to stretch due to the collapsing of the arch. This results in intense pain in the heel.

  • Plantar Fasciitis Surgery
    Plantar fasciitis surgery is recommended by a doctor only in cases of severe pain and inflammation. In most cases, the symptoms can be treated with the conventional method of treatment. More than ninety-five percent of the people are cured of the problem through non-surgical treatments such as rest, ice massaging, stretching and strengthening exercises, shoe inserts, night splints and anti-inflammatory drugs.

  • Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms
    Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a tough fibrous band of tissue that runs from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Excessive stretching of plantar fascia through physical activities like running and jumping or from natural causes such as flat feet, high arches or overpronation (feet rolling in or flattening) leads to the development of tears in the plantar fascia. These tears in the plantar fascia result in symptoms of pain and inflammation.

  • Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
    The problem of plantar fasciitis is commonly seen among runners, people who are overweight, people with flat feet or high arches, or those who stand on their feet for long hours doing their jobs. In most cases, non-surgical treatment can help a person to get rid of the problem. The duration, as well as the nature, of treatment may vary from one patient to the other. While it may take six weeks for some, it might take longer than six months for others to get effectively cured.
