Plantar Fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis can be a very painful and uncomfortable condition — but one that can also be easily alleviated.

Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the Plantar Fascia, a fibrous band on the bottom of the foot which connects the toes and heel bone.

The primary symptom of Plantar Fasciitis is pain in the arch and heel of the foot which:

  • Is often at its worst when you first put your foot on the floor getting out of bed
  • Is worse if you walk after a long period of resting
  • Makes it difficult to raise your toes off the floor
  • Goes away during exercise but returns once you begin resting again

There are a number of exercises you can do to treat Plantar Fasciitis at home, such as stretches for your calf muscles and feet, as well as icing your foot 2-3 times a day. However, the best course of action is to go see a qualified foot care nurse.
