What is it?
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. People with plantar fasciitis generally describe the pain as a stone bruise type pain. Often, the pain is worse the first few steps in the morning, after sitting down or towards the end of the day. The pain is caused by micro tears to the plantar fascia at the attachment point under the heel bone. Left untreated, the pain will persist for a long time.
