Plantar Fasciitis is a common cause of heel and foot pain in adults. The classic symptom of Plantar Fasciitis includes heel pain that is usually most severe first thing in the morning. Common contributors to this condition include: progressive flattening of arches; lack of flexibility in the calf muscles; changes in activity levels; overuse and weight gain. There are two main concepts in the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis: 1) the decrease of inflammation and 2) addressing the cause of the condition.
