Help Pain From Plantar Fasciitis
Often a pain associated with jogging, Plantar Fasciitis is the most common type of Heel Pain and it can be extremely painful.
Sometimes your pain subsides through use during the day, but often morning pain can be unbearable. In addition, if your return to your feet from a seating position and re-experience that sharp pain, you may have Plantar Fasciitis.
Specifically, Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue beginning at the heel and extending forward and under the ball of the foot. When excessive friction occurs about the foot from regular wear and tear, the plantar fascia can be strained and results in micro-tears. And it can hurt!
CAUSES OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS PAIN
The most common causes of Plantar Fasciitis heel pain include:
Overuse from walking and standing for long hours.
Hyperpronation and hypersupination.
Weight gain, physical condition, overall muscular conditioning and body weight relative to height.
In many circumstances, simple stretching techniques can really help the pain subside. Icing the heal also can provide short-term relief of inflammation.
