You may have never heard of plantar fasciitis, but it is a common and painful condition.
Are you experiencing pain in the heel of your foot? Or maybe the pain is in the arch of your foot or even in the ball of your foot. If you have been experiencing persistent foot pain with no known injury, there is a good chance that you have plantar fasciitis. There is a band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, from your heel up through the arch and down to the front near your toes. When this tissue becomes inflamed, it can create a very painful situation. In some serious instances, this tissue can even tear.
Plantar fasciitis is a very common condition and can occur in people of all ages and at all levels of fitness. It is common amongst athletes and nonathletes alike. Though it is common, healing can be challenging. It is not unusual for this pain to come and go for a long period of time.
