Do you have painful arches? Does the pain feel like your arches are being stretched to the limit and is it getting worse? Do you feel like your life is literally on hold because you can no longer do the simple carefree things you used to do like going for a jog before or after work or simply walking around where ever it may be. Your friends may have noticed how down you are appearing lately. You may have seen your doctor or even a Podiatrist and been diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis.

The plantar fascia is located on the sole of the foot. In simple laymans terms it originates from the heel bone and there is an inside band, middle band and an outside or lateral band of the plantar fascia which all insert into the forefoot metatarsals. One of the many functions of the plantar fascia is to hold the four muscle layers of the foot in place. It works just like the tensor fascia lata which is another fascia or fibrous band located on the outside of your thigh.

The root cause of Plantar Fasciitis is often uncontrolled abnormal pronation during the walking cycle. You see everybody pronates or “rolls in” when they walk. This is completely normal at heel strike and shortly afterwards. Pronation helps to unlock the bones of the foot which act as mobile ground adaptors to absorb shock as the heel hits the ground. The trouble is that when the foot leaves the ground the foot needs to be a rigid lever and if there is too much pronation then the plantar fascia starts to track sideways hence the tight painful stretch feeling which is really inflammation of the plantar fascia.
