Are you suffering from a tight pain in the arch of your feet? This could be a sign of plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a painful foot condition that is a result of inflammation and damage to an ligament called the plantar fascia found in the arch of your foot. The plantar fascia is an important ligament in your foot as it is performs many different roles needed for your foot to function properly including helping to pronate your feet when you walk, absorbing damaging shock and supporting the arch of your foot.
If you have plantar fasciitis it means that the ability of the plantar fascia to perform these functions is compromised which can make you even more susceptible to further foot damage and injury as a result. Plantar fasciitis will often cause the arch of your foot too feel inflamed, tight and sore with the pain usually being worse first thing in the morning as you make your first steps of the day.
The most common cause of this foot complaint is because of biomechanical imbalance when you walk. Excessive pronation is just one example of a biomechanical imbalance that can overtime cause damage to your plantar fascia ligament and cause plantar fasciitis. Pronation is required to help shift weight across your foot as you walk. However, too much pronation can cause excessive strain on the plantar fascia ligament making it more prone to over stretching and damage. If you have flat feet or high arches you are more likely to develop excessive pronation. Correcting the underlining causes of your plantar fasciitis is vital on ensuring a proper recovery and too make sure that your plantar fasciitis does not return. If you do not properly treat this injury and the plantar fascia continues to get damaged it can become chronic and the pain will get more serve.
