The pain and discomfort that is found in plantar fasciitis is located in the heel and arch area of the foot. It develops as a result of inflammation that affects the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes and runs along the bottom of the foot. The contributing factors for developing plantar fasciitis can include standing on hard surfaces for the majority of the day and wearing uncomfortable shoes, such as high heels. Additionally, patients who have gained weight may develop this ailment, and it can affect people who have low or high arches. The pain that accompanies plantar fasciitis can be debilitating, and it is strongly suggested that you are under the care of a podiatrist if you are experiencing heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis can be very painful and inconvenient. If you are experiencing heel pain or symptoms of plantar fasciitis, contact one of our podiatrists from Arbor - Ypsi Foot & Ankle Centers. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
