What Is Plantar Fasciitis & Foot Pain
Plantar fasciitis & foot pain are usually caused by repetitive strain and scar tissue build-up in the connective tissues of the foot.
In the same way that tooth decay doesn’t just appear by bad luck neither do plantar fasciitis & foot pain. We take millions of steps per year on concrete, tarmac & paving which are many times harder than almost all natural surfaces. These hard surfaces exert highly unnatural stresses on the sole of the foot.
We don’t all suffer from plantar fasciitis and foot pain however and that’s because we find there’s always underlying issues in the legs, hips and feet of plantar fasciitis and foot pain sufferers.
Possible underlying causes of plantar fasciitis & foot pain include:
- Very high arches
- Flat feet or low arches
- Scar tissue in foot or ankle
- Weakness in hip muscles
- Weak ankle stabilising muscles
- Glutes not firing properly
- Old injuries in ankle & knee
Which combination of the above you suffer from will determine exactly which part of your foot gets inflamed.
