Plantar fasciitis, literally “angry foot fascia”, is a tissue disorder in the foot that plagues active people in their 20s to 60s who place heightened stress on their heel (like runners, dancers, and pregnant women), people with very flat feet or very high arches, and people who stand on hard surfaces for long periods of time (sales floors clerks, chefs, bartenders, and more). With this condition, the connective tissues—the muscle and fascia—at bottom of the foot becomes so tight that placing your toes or heel down to the floor hurts. Plantar fasciitis does not have to be a life sentence. Getting out of bed in the morning and placing your feet on the floor can be painless once again. Here are three solutions to combat plantar fasciitis in just a few minutes a day.
