- Also called plantars fascia. Mostly common in middle age but you can get as early as teen age, people that are on their feet alot. It is a strain of your ligaments that are supporting your arches. There are many reasons this may happen, turning of foot inward, walking on hard surfaces for long periods of time, overweight, High or low arches.

Mainly you need good shoe support don’t wear heels, good arch support, apply ice three to four times daily for about 15 to 20 minutes. I personally recommend using a half boot like you would get at the doctors office and wear that during the day if your plantar fascia hurts all day. I sure hope that this is a quick read for you to help with your plantars fascitis. Good luck!
