Plantar Fasciitis is caused by overuse of the ligament at the bottom of the arch of the foot, causing pain in the arch and heel.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES & RISK FACTORS?
You are more likely to develop plantar fasciitis if you:
- Are either overweight or obese. This is due to increased pressure on your plantar fascia ligaments, particularly if you gain weight quickly.
you run long distances.
- Have an active job that requires you to be on your feet frequently, such as working in a factory or as a restaurant server.
- Have structural foot problems like high arches or flat feet,
have tight Achilles tendons (the tendons that connect your calf muscles to your heels).
- Shoes with soft soles and poor arch support are frequently worn.
