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.
Here are some easy suggestions to help avoid this painful condition
Plantar Fasciitis Treatments
Watch the height of your heel.
Shoes with heels, when worn regularly, will shorten the Achilles tendon, heightening your risk for plantar fasciitis. Alternate between heel sized and try to stay away from those stilettos.
