Signs And Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

Being on your feet all day is no easy task specially for your feet. Lots of standing or physical labor can really put a lot of strain and pressure on your feet. If your not careful, you may really injure your foot and even cause a condition called plantar fasciitis.

What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a very common cause of heel pain that effects millions of people every year. In your foot there is a ligament called plantar fascia that connects your heel bone to your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Plantar fasciitis occurs when you strain your plantar fascia and cause tearing. Though it is mostly common in middle-ages people, it can also happen to younger people who spend a lot of time on their feet.

Typically, plantar fasciitis causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot. The pain tends to be the worst during the first few steps after you have woken up. However, the pain can be worsened by long periods of sitting or standing as well. Ignoring plantar fasciitis can result in chronic heel pain that makes it near impossible to continue your regular activities.

In order to minimize the pain, some choose or find themselves changing the way they walk. However, this often causes foot, knee, hip or back problems to develop and greatly worsen your health.

This i s some great information, and I appreciate your point that plantar fasciitis causes a sharp pain in your foot, especially in the morning. I’ve been having some pains in my foot, and they’re always the worst in the morning when I’m getting out of bed. I’ll definitely look into visiting a specialist to see if it’s because of plantar fasciitis and to get that treated. Thanks for the great post!
