What is Plantar Fasciitis?
The plantar fascia is a strong weblike ligament which is attached to the heel bone and runs along the base of the foot to the heads of the five metatarsal bones. It supports the arch of the foot and also acts as a shock-absorber. Patients often report a stabbing sensation especially when they take their first steps in the morning. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain and tends to be more common in runners.
