Plantar Fasciitis / Arch Pain Treatment

Plantar Fasciitis / Arch Pain TreatmentOne of the most common causes of foot pain, Plantar Fasciitis is a painful inflammation of the plantar fascia – the thick band of tissue that supports the arch of the foot, stretching from the heel to the ball of the foot. When the plantar fascia are stretched too far, it can result in painful tears and inflammation.

Plantar Fasciitis may be caused by

  • High arches
  • Flat feet
  • Sudden increase in activity
  • Weight gain
  • Pregnancy
  • Poorly fitting footwear

The most common indication that you suffer from plantar fasciitis is pain in your arches when you first get out of bed in the morning, which eases after your feet have warmed up a little. Other symptoms may include

  • Inflammation and tenderness in the arch area
  • Pain under the heel, on the inside
  • Pain when pressing on the inside of the heel and sometimes along the arch, or when stretching your foot
  • Pain that’s worse after activity
