The cause of plantar fasciitis can develop from trauma to the foot, chronic repetitive strain associated with a flat, or overly pronated foot. Pain is usually felt on the underside of the heel, inside more often than outside of the arch, and is often most intense with the first steps of the day. It is commonly associated with long periods of weight bearing (standing).

Plantar Fasciitis can be a chronic and painful inflammatory condition caused by excessive strain to the "plantar fascia" (bottom fibrous tissue of the foot). Pain may be felt in the heel or the arch of the foot. The patient will typically experience pain first thing in the morning and throughout the day, or the patient may experience pain at night, after a full day of standing.
