Plantar Fasciitis

Inflammation of the longest ligament in the body is generally caused by an overuse injury resulting from a combination of increased exercising (mileage, speed, impact), biomechanical abnormality(flat foot, high arch, weakened arch), tightness in lower legs, improper shoes, weight gain, hard flooring, or simple wear and tear and mechanical breakdown. Symptoms generally always worsen with walking, standing, or running and improve with rest. It can be in any area on the bottom of the foot, but most commonly in the instep, central heel, front heel, and/or arch.
