Foot Pain: What Is It?
Do you have pain:
Under the arch of your foot?
Under your foot by the heel?
Under your foot at the back of the toes where they press on the ground?
Any one of the above is likely to be Plantar Fasciitis, also sometimes known or referred to as 'heel spurs'.
The plantar fascia is the ligament connecting your toes to your heel bone. It spans across the arches of your feet for support when you walk.
Straining this ligament, can cause tightness or pain under your foot that is more noticeable first thing in the morning, or after sitting for a long time, when standing or climbing stairs.
Plantar fasciitis is also a common runners’ or dancers’ injury because it’s born from repeated strain.
When caught early, these problems are easier to manage.
