All about this heel pain condition

This condition refers to inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament, which runs from the heel bone (calcaneus) and spreads out toward the toes. It is made up of many fibrous tissues which stretch as you put weight on your foot. Micro-tears in these tissues usually occur close to the ligament’s attachment at the heel bone. The micro-tearing leads to inflammation, which causes pain most commonly at the heel.

What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?

This injury is characterized by a stabbing or burning pain felt in the heel. Onset of pain usually occurs when getting up in the morning or sitting for a long period of time, as the ligament tends to shorten or tighten up when it is at rest for a prolonged period of time. Pain usually subsides once the tissue is warmed up, but standing an extended time period or increased activity will aggravate the fascia and cause more pain.

What is the function of the plantar fascia ligament?

The ligament is very similar to an elastic band, as it stretches and loosens as we walk, run or jump. Thus, it is responsible for bearing a great deal of weight and pressure, which leads us to the main causes of plantar fasciitis.

What causes plantar fasciitis?

  • Repetitive jumping or running (a common problem with athletes)
  • Arthritis (can cause inflammation of the tendons, which can lead to plantar fasciitis)
  • Diabetes (a contributing factor)
  • Improper footwear
  • Improper biomec...
