What is Plantar Fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis)?
Plantar Fasciitis is the name given to the inflamed condition of the thick connective tissue (a ligament) called the “plantar fascia” that supports the arch of your foot.
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot is overstretched or overused. This can be painful and make walking more difficult.
If the arches of your foot are abnormally high or low, you are more likely to develop plantar fasciitis than if your arches are normal. An orthotic arch support can be particularly helpful if you have flat feet or high arches. Healthy Step 9-to-5 Insoles and Podopro 2/3 Length Gel Insole.
