Are you suffering from plantar fasciitis? I have a friend that endures this illness for quite sometime now. I was intrigued what this illness all about and according to medical encyclopedia, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia or the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. This can occur when this thick tissue is overused or overstretched. Usually, those that have risk factors in having this illness are those that have foot arch problems (flat-footed or high arches), sudden gain weight or obesity, if you are running in an uneven surface, like downhill, and also if you are wearing shoes with poor arch support.
When I learned about its causes, I check here for plantar faciitis treatment. My friend was given a foot splint to wear every night to stretch the injured fascia and allow to heal. My husband loves running and sometimes he complained of having sore feet especially on its sole. He is flat-footed and he is more at risk of plantar fasciitis. I may have to check a splint for him too so he can wear it at night. Accordingly, the best prevention is to make sure that calf muscles, Achilles tendon, and ankle are best supported and flexible.
