Plantar fasciitis, which often exhibits as heel pain, is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia first becomes irritated and then inflamed.
Those who have problems with their arches or who have overly flat feet or high-arched feet, are more prone to developing Plantar fasciitis. Symptoms of Plantar fasciitis include pain on the bottom of the heel, pain that is usually worse upon rising and pain that increases over a period of months.
