What is Plantar Fasciitis?

The inflammation of the Plantar fascia, a thick bow of tissues that supports the arch of our foot, is known as Plantar Fasciitis. Our calcaneus (heel bone) is connected to our toes through these tissues. The Plantar fascia is normally shaped like a shock-absorbing bowstring that tears when subjected to increased tension. Inflammation occurs as a result of repeated strain on these tissues, resulting in a stabbing sensation in the foot. Depending on the severity of the tissue rupture, the pain might range from mild to excruciating.
