Plantar Fasciitis refers to heel and arch pain traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Specifically, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to its connection into the heel bone. Overpronation, the act of rolling your foot inward during walking or running, is the most common cause of plantar fasciitis. This condition, also known as heel spur syndrome, is often successfully treated with the help of anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices and physical therapy.
