Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It is caused by the inflammation of a thick band of tissue called the plantar fascia which runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. Symptoms include a stabbing pain that is usually worse first thing in the morning and tends to decrease with activity, but usually returns after long periods of standing or inactivity.
Plantar fasciitis is more common in athletes especially runners or people who are overweight and those who wear un- supportive shoes.
