Plantar Fasciitis

What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel. Usually indicated by pain in the first steps of the morning. Pain also occurs with the onset of activity such as walking and running, which subsides as activity rogresses, and usually returns after resting and then resuming activity. Plantar Fasciitis is considered a chronic inflammatory response rather than an acute injury. It is common in runners performing repetitive plantar flexion and dorsiflexion of the toes. It is also common with sudden weight gain.

The plantar fascia provides support for the medial longitudinal arch of the foot. The plantar fascia is stretched and the arch flattens slightly to absorb the impact each time the heel impacts the ground. The fascia is not very flexible and such repetitive stretching from impact can result in small tears in the fascia.

Signs And Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

Heel pain during the first steps of the morning is a classic sign of plantar fasciitis. This pain is the result of the foot resting in plantar flexion overnight. This allows the fascia to shorten. When the shortened fascia is stretched pain occurs. Pain is also common at the start of exercise and when resuming activity after rest. A history of recent weight gain or a sudden change in exercise pattern also is a sign of plantar fasciitis.

Pain continues due to the chronic inflammation of the torn fascia. A heel spur can be a sign of fasciitis, but is typically not a cause. About half of patients with plantar fasciitis have spurs.

Supination

Supination is an extreme raised arch of the foot, causing the foot and ankle to appear to lean or tip to the outside. Over rotation of the foot can cause instability when walking.

Symptoms of Supination

  • Knee, hip, lower back and neck pain
  • Ankle instability or roll over
  • Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and strain on lateral collateral ligaments
  • One or more spinal vertebrae out of alignment
