Plantar Fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

The plantar fascia has a shape of a “bowstring” that supports the arch of the foot. It is responsible for the task of absorbing shock as we walk around. Increased tension on the arch can result in “small tears” in the fascia, then even a little stress can cause inflammation in the fascia. 

It is the reason behind painful sensations in the bottom of the foot closer to the heel. Pain is often worse initially but gets reduced as we take a few steps after waking up.
