Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis “PLAN-ter fash-ee-EYE-tus” is heel pain often referred to as jogger’s heel. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.
If you’ve woken up in the morning and find it’s excruciatingly painful to put weight on your foot, and more specifically, your heel — chances are, you’ve got PF.
