When you get out of bed in the morning and and have Pain in your arch or heel after stepping on the floor, you may have Plantar Fasciitis. The pain is in the middle of the heel or along the arch. Plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the tissue (which is called planter fascia) connecting the heel bone to the toes. The pain is like a “stabbing” pain but slowly goes away once your foot has warmed up. However, after sitting or standing for a long period of time, the pain may return.
The reason the pain is obvious and severe in the morning because the foot is trying to heal itself in a contracted position overnight. The first step causes sudden strain on the bottom of the foot.
Under normal circumstances, plantar fascia is like a shock absorbing bowstring supporting arch in your foot. If tension becomes too great, it create small tear in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing may cause the fascia to become inflamed.
