What are the Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?
People who suffer from Plantar Fasciitis often feel a sharp pain that usually occurs with their very first steps in the morning. Once the foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis is known to decrease, but has been noted to reappear after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
Sudden stretching of the sole of the foot may increase the pain. In extreme cases, symptoms include numbness, tingling and swelling as a result of small tears in the ligament.
Who is Prone to Plantar Fasciitis?
Around 10% of people experience Plantar Fasciitis at some point in their lives.
Plantar Fasciitis most commonly arises in older people, but may also occur in younger individuals who are on their feet for many hours of the day.
It is particularly typical for runners to experience Plantar Fasciitis. It may occur if one starts running on a different surface, such as road instead of track.
In addition, it is known to affect individuals with extreme inward rolling of the foot, which is connected with flat feet.
Plantar Fasciitis is also identified with age, obesity and lack of physical exercise.
Another common cause might be wearing shoes with insufficient support.
You should not ignore this condition which can become progressively worse over time. Plantar Fasciitis can be effectively treated with a combination of massage therapy, stretching, and specific exercise therapy. Treatment will usually take just 10-15 minutes daily, over a 4-6 week period. Get started today!
