Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia (connective
tissue).  This connective tissue attaches to the heel and to the bones
of each of toe.


What can cause it?


  • Excessive exercise that causes stretching of the plantar fascia, including running, jogging, squatting
  • Wearing high heels
  • Being overweigh
  • Having flat fee
  • Pregnancy
  • Tight calf muscles

What are the symptoms?


Pain in the heel when weight bearing, which is often worse first
thing in the morning (after a long period of rest) and then reduces in
pain as the day goes on. The symptoms can last for months and can get
worse.


What are the treatments?


  • Resting the foot and avoiding any excessive periods of exercise
    whether it be walking, running or jogging as continuing will exacerbate
    the condition.
  • Gentle exercises to stretch the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia.
  • Prescribed orthotics (insoles in shoes), to provide cushioning.
  • Steroid injection in to the heel.
