Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common heel problems seen by Canadian Certified Pedorthists, effecting one in ten people at some point in their life. The plantar fascia is a thick band of fibre that runs on the bottom of the foot. It begins at the heel bone, runs through the arch, and attaches into the toes. Unlike muscle, fascia has very little elasticity, so it can easily become irritated, inflamed, overused, or torn.
