What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

When someone has this condition, it is located in a specific area of the feet. Each foot has a thick tissue on the underside of it. This connects the heel bone at one end with the toes on the other end. When this tissue gets inflamed, the result is often foot pain. It's often at its worst when the patient first wakes up and walks away from bed. The pain can be relieved somewhat by walking around. If you sit down for a while or remain standing in one position, the pain may worsen when you start walking again.

Plantar fasciitis often causes frequent, chronic pain and can greatly affect your life. It can make ordinary tasks much harder to do. Many people with this condition change their walk to try to hurt less, which can cause pain in the knees and back. When you have this condition, you need to get chiropractic care to help you get back to your normal life. 

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

Modern science doesn't yet understand what specifically causes it, but there have been a number of recent discoveries over the past few years. The tissue under the foot is called the plantar fascia. This absorbs shock as you walk and provides arch support. When this tissue is under tension and stress, it can get inflamed. It may also cause very small tears.

As you walk, this tissue gets stretched and torn further, and this worsens the inflammation. There are a number of risk factors that make it more likely that you'll get this condition. These include being aged 40 to 60, being obese, doing ballet, engaging in aerobics, and frequent running. If you have high arches, this is another risk factor.
