Your plantar fascia is a strong band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Plantar fasciitis is sometimes described as an overuse injury as persistent repetitive stress can damage the tissue causing pain often on the bottom of your heel or your arch. It is one of the most common sorts of heel pain.
It can affect athletes such as runners as well as people who perhaps have jobs keeping them on their feet much of the time. It can also affect sedentary people.
