What is it?

Plantar Fasciitis (pronounced plan-tar fash-ee-eye-tis) is a common cause of heel and foot pain in adults. “Plantar” means the bottom of the foot; “fascia” is a type of connective tissue, and “itis” means “inflammation”.

The classic symptoms of plantar fasciitis include heel pain that is usually most severe first thing in the morning. This condition is characterized by inflammation at the insertion point of the plantar fascia on the heel bone. Plantar fascia is a layer of tough fibrous tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot and supports your arch. This is one of the longest and strongest ligaments in the body.

As the plantar fascia pulls on the heel, your body will respond by laying down more bone in the area. This can be seen on an x-ray and is known as a heel spur.

I started with left ankle and knee pain just over a year ago which has eased off but now I have plantar faciitis in my left foot and I am noticing pain in my right hip . Your advice re plantar faciitis makes so much sense and its the first time in all my research that I have resonated with the cause and treatment. Stretching has just not worked. I’m up for strenghtening with picking things up with my toes. And also, my job has been far more stressful than I can handle for far too long and I as am aiming to take a month off after next week – I feel that I am now on the right track.
Thankyou for your advice – it makes so much sense – at last.

A survey of US professional football, baseball, and basketball team physicians and trainers found that plantar fasciitis was among the 5 most common foot and ankle injuries observed in professional athletes. [ 22 ] It is estimated that approximately 1 million patient visits per year are due to plantar fasciitis. [ 17 ] Plantar fasciitis accounts for about 10% of runner-related injuries and 11-15% of all foot symptoms requiring professional care. It is thought to occur in 10% of the general population as well. It may present bilaterally in a third of cases.

What a complex complaint PF is.  Nothing seems to be the same as in treatment, just the pain which is nothing like other pain.  What sometimes works or suits 1 doesn't another.  I had a Cortizone injection 2 months ago which didn't improve.  In general I am told to wear gel heels and then for me I find they make it worse, no matter how soft they are.  I find soaking my feet in ice is like being in heaven and temporary relief is the taping recommended by the doc.  It takes a lot of the discomfort away.  Go onto U Tube to see how to do it. I did pay privately to see a Podiatrist and he sorted insoles out  to the shape of my foot in some trainers.  They are the most comfortable things I can wear. It seems to be a complaint that is in curable.  Sometimes I am told it can just disappear.
