What is plantar fasciitis?
An inflamed plantar fascia can be extremely painful; it can be caused by overuse of the plantar fascia and can be difficult to treat. It is estimated that at least 10% of the population of America will suffer from this condition over a life time. The pain is often felt at the bottom of the heel, the pain also usually builds up and gets worse over time. Plantar fasciitis can also result in an increased likelihood of pain in the knees due to the way a person shifts their weight into an unnatural posture in an effort to relieve pain on the heel.
