Plantar Fasciitis is a common overuse injury to the bottom of your foot usually the culprit of heel pain. When irritated or symptomatic the thick band of tissue which runs from your toes to your heel will become inflamed. Symptoms include a stabbing pain under your foot or heel bone worst in the morning when taking your first few steps. Walking tends to reduce the pain but can reappear after sitting and then standing and taking a few steps. This injury is common in runners, people who are overweight, and people who wear shoes not supportive enough for their foot.
