Plantar fasciitis is irritation and swelling of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot.
The plantar fascia is a very thick band of tissue that covers the bones on the bottom of the foot. This fascia can become inflamed and painful in some people, making walking more difficult.
Risk factors for plantar fasciitis include:
· Foot arch problems (both flat foot and high arches)
· Sudden weight gain
· Tight Achilles tendon (the tendon connecting the calf muscles to the heel)
A typical patient is an active man age 40-
The most common complaint is pain in the bottom of the heel, usually worst in the morning and improving throughout the day. By the end of the day the pain may be replaced by a dull aching that improves with rest.
