Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition marked by a stabbing pain in the heel, and sometimes, extending throughout the bottom of the foot, which is usually most prominent during the first steps in the morning. This condition occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick tissue band connecting the heel to the toes, becomes inflamed due to excessive pressure or strain. 

Common Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can arise due to a combination of reasons. The following factors play a significant role in its onset:

  • Body Weight: Being overweight increases the pressure on the plantar fascia, leading to inflammation.
  • Footwear: Shoes without proper support or cushioning can aggravate the condition.
  • Prolonged Standing: Occupations or routines that involve extended standing can strain the plantar fascia.
  • Intensive Exercise: High-impact exercises without appropriate foot support can predispose individuals to plantar fasciitis.
  • Athletic Involvement: Runners are especially susceptible due to repetitive stress on the heel and attached tissue.
