Plantar Fasciitis is a pain in the heel. In fact, it’s one of the most common causes of heel pain and is seen in people involved with high-impact sports like running and cross-training as well as those who simply spend too much time standing on hard surfaces like pavement or concrete floors. The Plantar Fascia ligament runs from the ball of your foot to the heal bone and helps control movement while walking. When this tissue becomes overly stretched or torn, you may feel that telltale sharp pain at your heal.
The pain from Plantar Fasciitis can affect a person’s day-to-day life. Unlike running injuries that come with increased mileage or wear and tear, plantar fasciitis is driven by the body’s natural structure and its biomechanical function. Due to its heavy usage in normal activities like walking, kneeling, jumping, or even standing still for long periods of time, this flat ribbon-like tissue becomes stretched and weak which puts more stress on other tissues like bones and ligaments. You’ll often hear about people suffering from these painful symptoms after sitting for too long.
