Plantar Fascitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a piece of strong, thick tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. It connects the heel bone to the toes, creating the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain and can develop as a result of overstretching, overuse, or a medical condition.

To take to stress out of the silly season, we’ve provided a small back to school preparation guide to help get you sorted!

    What causes plantar fasciitis?

    Plantar fasciitis can be caused by:

  • Playing sports and doing activities that put stress on the heel bone, such as running, dance and aerobics
  • Being flat-footed or having high arches
  • Being middle-aged or older
  • Being overweight
  • Pregnancy
  • Spending a lot of time on your feet
  • Wearing shoes with poor arch support or stiff soles
  • Having tight calf muscles
