Heel Pain arising in the thick band of tissue (plantar fascia) that runs across the bottom of your feet and connects the heel bone to the toes is known as Plantar Fasciitis. It is a prevalent cause of heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common orthopedic complaints. Your plantar fascia ligaments experience a lot of wear and tear in your daily life. Normally, these ligaments act as shock absorbers, supporting the arch of the foot. Too much pressure on your feet can damage or tear the ligaments. The plantar fascia becomes inflamed, and the inflammation causes heel pain and stiffness. This is more likely to happen if:
- You have high arches or flat feet.
- You walk, stand, or run for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces.
- You are overweight.
- You wear shoes that don't fit well or are worn out.
The major complaint of those with plantar fasciitis is pain and stiffness at the bottom of the heel. This develops gradually over time. It usually affects just one foot, but can affect both feet. Some people describe the pain as dull, while others experience a sharp pain and some feel a sense of burn or ache at the bottom of the foot extending outward from the heel.
The pain is usually worse in the morning when you take your first steps out of bed, or if you've been sitting or lying down for a while.
Usually after walking a few steps, pain gets ameliorated. Climbing stairs can be very difficult due to the heel stiffness.
