Do you often feel pain under your foot but don’t know what may be causing it? The plantar fascia is a ligament-like band running from your heel to the ball of your foot. This band pulls on the heel bone, raising the arch of your foot as it pushes off the ground. If your foot moves incorrectly, the plantar fascia may become strained. The fascia may swell and its tiny fibres may begin to fray, causing plantar fasciitis. If you are experiencing something similar, come meet us for a proper check-up and treatment in Calgary.
Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
With plantar fasciitis, the bottom of your foot may hurt when you stand, especially first thing in the morning. Pain usually occurs on the inside of the foot, near the spot where your heel and arch meet. Pain may lessen after a few steps, but it comes back after rest or with prolonged movement.
