Plantar Fasciitis is a foot condition which causes inflammation to the plantar fascia – a part of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes. Many people who struggle with this will feel pain around their heel and arch of the foot and usually, the pain is worse in the morning. Other areas which may suggest you have plantar fasciitis are pain in the feet after exercising but nothing during, and also difficulty raising your toes from the floor.
Plantar fasciitis is estimated to affect 1 in 10 people at some point during their lifetime and most commonly affects people between 40–60 years of age. However, it can usually resolve itself within 6 – 18 months without treatment. Things such as stretching the feet, wearing the right footwear, resting your feet can also help in the long run.
Here at Charles Clinkard, we have put together some do’s and don’ts, and we’re also recommending which styles of footwear you should and shouldn’t be wearing if you suffer from this condition.
