The plantar fascia is a thick connective tissue running the length of the arch, from the front of the heel bone to the ball of the foot. Too much stress or OVERUSE may lead to strain on the arch and fascia causing a tear of the tissues and associated nerves which may bring about heel pain. If not properly taken care of, calcium can build up on the base of the heel near the plantar fascia resulting into a heel spur. Treat your plantar fasciitis by resting, stretching and/or change and modify your footwear.
