Plantar fasciitis is a common ailment, causing heel and foot pain in adults. The plantar fascia is a layer of tough, fibrous connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and supports the arch.
When your arch collapses, this connective tissue, or the plantar fascia, is stretched beyond its limits, and inflammation occurs, creating the classic symptoms of plantar fasciitis, including heel pain, which is most severe after long periods of rest. You may also experience bone spurs. Stabilizing and restoring your foot arches significantly reduces the tension created daily on your feet.
