Plantar fasciitis is the term commonly used to refer to heel and arch pain traced to an

inflammation on the bottom of the foot. More specifically, plantar fasciitis is an

inflammation of the connective tissue, called plantar fascia, that stretches from the base

of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel

bone. Overpronation is the most common cause of plantar fasciitis. As the foot rolls inward

excessively when walking, it flattens the foot, lengthens the arch, and puts added tension

on the plantar fascia. Over time, this causes inflammation.

Also known as heel spur syndrome, the condition is often successfully treated with

conservative measures, such as the use of anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs,

stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and physical therapy. Note: Please consult your
