Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is pain that shoots from the arch of your foot to the heel. The symptoms include a dull, constant ache and stabbing pains at times as well. Plantar fasciitis is a condition that many people develop around their feet and ankles. It can also be accompanied by inflammation caused on top of its area, which often worsens when you stand after sitting for long periods but not during exercise like running because plantar fascia muscles stretch as we land our weight onto them causing injury if they are too tight or pressure from standing hours with an increased risk in tearing these tissues.
Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Too much pressure and stretching damages inflame or tear your plantar fascia. Unfortunately, there’s no discernable cause for some cases. However, you are more likely to get plantar fasciitis if:
- You have high arched feet or flat feet – You wear shoes that don’t support your foot (especially on a hard surface)
- 70% of patients with plantar fascia is also an athlete.
Another cause could also come from trauma which would limit one’s ability to feel what should hurt them when stretching improperly; without feeling any discomfort in certain places.
Diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis
Your healthcare provider will, after noting your medical history and performing a physical examination on the foot you suspect is injured, take x-rays if necessary for diagnosis. This should be treated as soon as possible to avoid any further damage or permanent injury.
