About Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar Fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia, or connective tissue along the bottom of your foot, gets tight, swollen and irritated. Plantar fascia is a flat band of connective tissue that runs from your heel bone to your toes. It helps provide stability for the arch of your foot but can cause problems when it gets inflamed.

What They Say Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis commonly occurs in adolescent athletes, soldiers and the middle aged population who are on their feet often. Repeated strain on the plantar fascia leads to irritation and inflammation, causing pain with weight bearing, walking and running. Over time, repeated straining of the plantar fascia can cause microtears in the ligaments, leading to increased pain.

What Really Causes Most Foot Pain:

  • Your body is lacking vital vitamins & nutrients
  • Inflammation sets in due to lack of absorption of these vitamins & minerals
  • Without them your nerves and muscles don't function properly
  • Most cases, foot issues are misdiagnosed
