You might be wondering what Plantar Fasciitis is, if you have never had it. I used to wonder as well until my brother developed it. He was on the heavy side and his job required him to spend several hours on his feet. After some time, he began to feel pain on the bottom of his heel. The pain was more intense in the morning after getting out of bed and taking the first steps. To the doctor he went.
The doctor diagnosed him with Plantar Fasciitis, which is an inflammatory condition that causes major pain in the heel and sometimes in the arch of the foot.
The most common causes of Plantar Fasciitis are a flattening of the arch produced by obesity, weight gain, unsupported badly worn shoes, jobs that require several periods of standing or walking on hard surfaces, and inactivity. Because of the flat arch, the soft tissue under the foot is being stretched with every step causing the inflammation, irritation, and pain in the heel bone, under the foot, or in the arch. The continuous pull of the fascia at the heel bone can develop a bony growth on the heel called heel spur.
Pain relief treatment for Plantar Fasciitis include rest, ice, weight loss, stretching exercises, elevation, and Tendlite – Anti-inflammatory & Analgesic LED Red Light Therapy Device
