Heel Pain & Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of the the tough connective tissue that spans from the heel to the toes. Because this tissue is not very elastic, it often becomes irritated when it is overstretched due to over pronation often seen in feet that have collapsed arches. Other causes of irritation may be related to tight calf muscles, stiff ankles, improper fitting shoes, or excessive amounts of running or walking.
