Plantar fasciitis or inflammation of the plantar fascia comes about when the ligament suffers microscopic tears where it joins the heel bone, or along the ligament itself. With incorrect foot mechanics, overutilization or other catalysts, the force on the plantar fascia during running and walking and the shift of body weight from one foot to the other can tear the fascia from and develop microscopic tears.
In this article i will give some tips and ticks for curing this condition, and also introduce you to this very great guide called Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Guide, that can teach you all you need to as to totally get rid of your Plantar Fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful and stubborn condition. At its most extreme, serious cases can possibly lead to ruptures in the ligament.
Wearing good shoes at all times is very important in treating plantar fasciitis and avoiding it in the first place. Often wearing badly fitting or made shoes can lead to plantar fasciitis. Avoid walking barefoot or wearing flip-flops as the heel doesn't have any cushioning and this can damage the plantar fascia. The best shoes for treating the condition should have no or minimal heel (for ladies, keep heels under 3 inches), a well-cushioned sole, and padded arch support. Some shoes tend to lack sufficient cushioning, especially at the heel and front foot, and don't allow enough structural support around the arch and mid-foot. With improved cushioning and support of good shoes, the strain on the heelbone and along the foot while exercising can be lowered by a large amount, preventing plantar fasciitis.
