They're the workhorses of our bodies, but we give them so little respect. It's easy to take our feet for granted. They're just there, putting up with a host of challenges, from being jammed into high heels and elevated to unnatural heights to smothering inside sweaty socks or tight nylon pantyhose.

Foot Specialist and Plantar Fasciitis

by Shearly (SU)
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammatory condition causing foot and heel pain. Supporting the arch, the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue connecting the heel to the ball of the foot, can become inflamed or even tear. The condition develops when repeated weight-bearing activities put a strain on the plantar fascia, which is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed).
