Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick piece of tissue that runs under your foot. This tissue, called the plantar fascia, can become inflamed if you have high or low arches, are wearing the wrong shoes for you, or from injury or overuse. Over time, continuing physical activities, like running and dancing, or constant standing and movement can lead to plantar fasciitis. This inflammation is one of the most common orthopedic foot complaints that can also lead to chronic plantar fasciitis. Prevention through stretching and proper shoe gear is important to keep up your everyday activities without pain.
