Plantar Fasciitis – Symptoms

Plantar fasciitis pain occurs only on the sole and heel of the foot. It may cause severe pain along the entire length of the plantar fascia tissue and where these ligaments are attached to the heel bone in the rear foot and the five metatarsal bones also. Some of the most
common symptoms of the plantar fasciitis pain are the following.

Plantar Fasciitis can first occur as simple heel pain, under the heel and usually on the inside area of feet, and also at the origin of the attachment of the fascia. It can start as pain when pressing on the inside of the heel and sometimes even along the foot arch.

This pain might be usually the first thing which gives you a worst start of the day in the morning as the fascia tightens up overnight. After a few minutes it eases as the foot gets warmed up. If it is in advanced state the condition will become even more severe and the
pain can get worse throughout the day if you go on doing activities like running, walking etc throughout the day. Another symptom is that stretching of plantar fascia tissue becoming more painful as time passes by.

In some cases there may be pain along the outside border of the heel. This condition may occur due to the offloading the painful side of the heel by walking applying pressure on the outside border of the foot. It may also be associated with the high impact of landing on the outside of the heel if you have high arched feet.

Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs are most commonly found in people who involve themselves in sports which include running, dancing or jumping. Runners who overpronate are more vulnerable to plantar fasciitis as the biomechanics of the foot pronating causes additional
stretching of the plantar fascia tissue and might cause pain.
