plantar fasciitis treatmentPlantar Fasciitis treatment is often ineffective. This is because the mechanism is poorly understood and the wrong tissues are often treated.

(PF) is an inflammation of the plantar fascia. It causes pain on the bottom of the foot. This is typically worse where the primary arch meets the front edge of the heel. Chronic strain of the plantar fascia causes this inflammation. The single origin point on the heel bears more force than any other point on the plantar fascia. This is why we feel it the most there.

The Plantar Fascia is a tough fibrous sheet on the bottom (plantar) side of your foot connecting the heads of the foot bones (tarsals) to the inside front corner of the heel (calcaneus).
