Plantar Fasciitis:

A soft tissue structure (plantar fascia) attaches onto the heel bone and stretches when weight-bearing, causing pain on the heel bottom. This stretching over an extended time period will cause the plantar fascia to become inflamed and the heel pain more extreme. Conservative therapies, such as injections, oral anti-inflammatory medicine, stretching exercises and orthotics, will relieve the pain. In some cases, Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) or heel surgery may be needed to lengthen the tightened structure.
