Plantar Fasciitis Causes
What causes plantar fasciitis?
This condition is caused by reoccurring injuries to the large connective tissue that attaches at the toes and the heel. This connective tissue is prone to injury from repetitive or excessive stress. The result of this kind of stress in this area of the foot is minuscule tears in the plantar fasciia.
This condition can also be a result of the actual mechanics of the foot. Conditions such as flat feet, high arches, pronation, or having an abnormal gait (walking pattern, or how the foot contacts the ground), can cause overuse of the fascia. If overused or stretched abnormally this will result in tears and inflammation.
