Irritation of the plantar fascia.
Plantar fasciitis is irritation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot.
In order to reduce the risk it’s important to know the potential reasons for plantar fasciitis:
1. Poor arch support
2. Inadequate shock absorption in your shoe
3. Lack of range of motion in the toe or ankle causing stiffness
4. Poor gait or walking patterns
If you’re experiencing pain that appears to be related to plantar fasciitis, Dr. Mark Mikhael focuses on the management of all musculoskeletal conditions of the foot and ankle.
