Plantar Fasciitis causes pain on the bottom and/or the inside margin of your heel. The plantar fascia can absorb shock and support the arch of the foot when walking. Too much pressure on the feet can tear or damage the ligaments, which can cause inflammation, and heel stiffness and pain.
The primary symptom is pain in the heel and mid-foot area. It typically affects one foot, but may affect both feet. This pain will develop over time and can range from dull to sharp.
The pain is most noticeable first thing in the morning or after periods of sitting /lying down. This pain can also effect the ability to climb stairs due to heel stiffness. This pain typically is noticed during activities, however noticed more when stopping.
