The most common foot problem which effects one out of four people. It is a painful but correctable ailment. Every time your foot strikes the ground, the plantar fascia, a broad band of fibrous tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, is stretched which can cause heel pain. You can reduce the strain and stress on the plantar fascia by avoiding running on hard or uneven ground and by wearing shoes and orthotics that support your arch to prevent over-stretching of the plantar fascia.
