What is Plantar Fasciitis? 

Having pain in your heels while you walk? Always have more pain while taking the first few steps of the day? Chances are that you are suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. You do not have reasons to worry much because the condition is very much treatable. 

Plantar Fasciitis, if indeed you are suffering from the condition, is the most common cause of heel pain, especially if it hurts more while you are standing, running, or climbing stairs. The condition is certain to be plantar fasciitis, if the pain gets relieved after first few steps and comes back after excessive walking. 

There is no one single cause of why you may be suffering from the condition. The condition occurs because of inflammation of the plantar fascia tissue. The tissue connects the heel of the foot to the toes. The tissue provides support to the arch of the foot. As the tissue gets strained and has to withstand more use, the tissue gets weakened and inflamed. So, the condition occurs because of the overuse of the tissue. The overuse may be for a number of reasons and can be different for different people. If you are suffering from the condition, it may be because your schedule includes a lot of walking or running. This is one of the reasons the condition is prevalent among athletes. Another reason can be your excessive weight. In addition to these activities, chances of having an inflamed plantar fascia tissue may be that you have flat feet or high arches. Other reason why you may have a strained tissue might be hidden in the condition of your shoes. If you are wearing shoes that don’t fit well or are damaged.

You need not to worry about the condition, because you have come to the right place at the right time. The pain and the condition can get better in a very short duration, but you must not let it continue without getting treatment. The reason is simple and that is even minute problems, if left on their own can become complex.
