Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory condition caused by excessive wear to the plantar fascia of the foot, or biomechanical faults that cause abnormal pronation of the foot. The pain usually is felt on the underside of the heel, and is often most intense with the first steps of the day. It is commonly associated with long periods of weight bearing or sudden changes in weight bearing activity. Obesity, weight gain, jobs that require a lot of walking on hard surfaces, shoes with little or no arch support, and inactivity are also associated with the condition.

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that affects the connective tissue in the arch of the foot known as the plantar fascia. Damage to the plantar fascia can cause extreme discomfort and pain in the foot and heel. Inflammation occurs when small tears develop in the connective tissue along the arch of the foot. The extent of the damage contributes to the overall pain that a person suffering from plantar fasciitis may experience. Pain among the heel may be experienced following long periods of inactivity such as in the morning hours, or after prolonged activity.
