PLANTAR FASCIITIS INTRODUCTION
The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fascitis which is commonly referred to as a Heel Spur. Plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue which runs along the bottom surface of the foot, from the heel to the toes Click here to view diagram. Plantar fascitis is a condition in which the plantar fascia is inflamed. This condition can be very painful and cause considerable amount of suffering.
Long standing inflammation causes the deposition of calcium at the point where the plantar fascia inserts into the heel. This results in the appearance of a sharp thorn like heel spur on x-ray. The heel spur is a-symtomatic (not painful), the pain arises from the inflammation of the plantar fascia. Symptoms include a dull ache which is felt most of the time with episodes of a sharp pain in the center of the heel or on the inside margin of the heel.
CAUSES OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS
Excessive load on the foot from obesity is a major cause of plantar fascitis. Which is why this condition is common in middle aged and over weight adults.
A sudden increase in weight, such as pregnancy can also lead to plantar fascitis.

"I have suffered terribly with early morning heel pain and after I have rested for a little while. The heel used to throb during the day and I was always in a bad mood! Since I have been using your silicone heel cups and your sports insoles for about 4 months I have been pain free and happy!
