What is Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. It is typically caused by overuse or strain of the foot due to activities such as running or jumping. Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include pain in the heel or arch of the foot, tenderness when pressure is applied to the sole of the foot, and swelling or stiffness in the arch of the foot.
