Plantar Fasciitis-Heel Pain In The Morning

Pain that is worse with the first few steps in the morning and when you first get up and walk after sitting a while are the classic symptoms for a condition known as plantar fasciitis.

The plantar fasca becomes inflamed if the foot pronates or rolls over too much and stretches out the plantar fasca too much. This causes inflammation where the plantar fascia is attached to the heel. The inflammation actually begins to heal when you sleep or even when you sit and rest for 5-10 minutes.  However when you start walking again the newly healed tissue is torn out resulting in extreme pain.  As you continue the walk the pain eases a bit because the damage is done.  The pain comes from damaging the newly healed tissues.

The key to preventing plantar fasciitis is to prevent excessive pulling of the plantar fasca where it inserts into the heel. Most heel pain is caused by plantar fasciitis can be corrected with an arch support.
