Why Everyone Should Be Aware Of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can happen to anyone, from an active runner or athlete to a worker who is on their feet all day. Many may not be aware, but the foot is made up of numerous complex tissues, muscles, and bones that can become damaged quite easily if the foot is not properly cared for. The foot has a thick, fibrous band of tissue called the fascia that reaches from the heel to the toes and provides support to the muscles and arch of the foot. When this tissue becomes overly stretched, tiny tears can occur on the surface, resulting in pain and inflammation.
