Do you experience heel pain and feel the sense of inflammation on your feet? You could be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. It is one of the common foot pain and problems that cause heel pain. It affects the band of tissue at the bottom of your feet that connects the heel bone to the toes, and Plantar Fasciitis causes it to be inflamed.
About 10% of people suffer from Plantar Fasciitis in their lifetime and an average of one million people seek doctor and certified pedorthist treatment annually according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.
Those suffering from Plantar Fasciitis are usually in the age group of 40 to 60 years old because of the loosen elasticity of the band of tissue at the bottom of your feet. Between the genders, women tend to develop Plantar Fasciitis compared to men, and this is due to the choice of footwear such as high heels.
Another factor that can cause Plantar Fasciitis is due to obesity as studies show that 70% of Plantar Fasciitis cases are diagnosed due to the individuals’ weight. It is also commonly experienced by runners as the impact of running put an added stress and tension on the feet. For runners diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, the plantar fascia ligament on your feet actually absorbs shock from running and it gets worse after, not during your run.
Plantar Fasciitis is the feeling of stabbing pain at the bottom of your feet near your heel area. The pain is usually unbearable on your first few steps in the morning after you wake up when you get up after sitting and after standing for a long period of time. Even though the pain decreases after the first few times, it might be triggered again.
Having added stress and tension on the plantar fascia ligament can cause it to tear, repeatedly tearing and stressing it will further inflame and worsen your Plantar Fasciitis condition. Without proper treatment or relief, Plantar Fasciitis may result in extreme heel pain which will obstruct your daily routine or activities. Some people might change their walking posture to accommodate the pain, but that will result in knee, hip, or back pain and problems.
