Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of someone experiencing heel pain. Plantar fasciitis results in significant inflammation of the thick band of connective tissue that runs from the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes known as the plantar fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is commonly described as stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you start to move around the pain usually decreases, but usually returns shortly after long periods of standing.
Plantar fasciitis is more common in runners but can happen to anyone. The cause of plantar fasciitis is usually a combination of a few things including poor posture, muscle imbalance, dysfunctional movement patterns, weakness and instability in the core, and improper footwear
We can help by addressing these imbalances and correcting dysfunctional movement patterns.
