|Causes of Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis
Heel Pain is often caused by a sudden increase in activity
such as taking up a new sport or unusually long walk in unsuitable
shoes. Patients with flat feet or high arches are more susceptible
to plantar fasciitis. Being overweight puts greater pressure
on the plantar fascia, there is a increasing number of patients
I see in clinic with this as the underling cause.
Conditions such as over pronation causes the feet to roll in
excessively putting greater pressure on the plantar fascia which
can cause heel pain. Running on hard pavements and increasing
your hill work can also cause plantar fasciitis. Stretching
before and after exercise is often neglected yet it is one of
the most important steps to preventing injuries and heel pain.
Also, stretching the bottom of the foot, as well as the calf
can significantly reduce strain throughout the foot. Easing
into a new or increasingly difficult routine is also important
to limit the amount of sudden pressure on the foot.
Inactive lifestyles centered around desk jobs decreases calf
muscles flexibility which can be a underling causes of heel
pain. Stiff shoes that do not bend easily increases the tension
on the plantar fascia which can also cause this condition.
