Plantar Fasciitis (PF) is a 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 can tear. The condition develops normally when repeated weight-bearing activities put a strain on the plantar fascia. Many persons with PF report that symptoms can be the worse when first getting up in the morning and weight bearing. Physical Therapy can help treat PF by instructing in specific stretching of the involved tissues, and with education on proper footwear and orthotics.
