Medical experts estimate that about one of ten individuals will suffer from this painful condition at some point in life.
Approximately 2 million new causes are reported every year. The plantar fascia is band-like flat ligament connecting the bone of your heel to the toes, and walking stretches this ligament. Fasciitis is what medical professionals call a strain that causes the pain. Repeated stress or overuse of ligament is often the culprit of the pain.
