Plantar Fasciitis is a common athletic foot injury. While runners are most likely to suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, any athlete whose sport involves intensive use of the feet may be vulnerable. The risk of this injury increases in athletes who have a particularly high arch, or uneven leg length, though improper biomechanics of the athlete’s gait and simple overuse tend to be the primary culprits.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?Plantar fasciitis refers to a type of foot injury which is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick, fibrous band running along the sole of the foot. Such inflammation results from direct injury to the plantar fascia, usually, repeated trauma to the tissue aOlernKienOP

Injury to the plantar fascia is particularly painful and disabling for runners and can often prove stubbornly resistant to treatment. Rehabilitation is frequently a lengthy and frustrating process. For these reasons, care should be taken where possible to avoid such injury by means of preventative exercises and sensitivity to early warning signs.

Online Womens Shoes French Blue 7s commonly, the plantar fascia is injured at its attachment point on the medial tubercle of the calcaneus. During running, the arch of the foot flattens during the pronation phase, allowing the foot to absorb shock as it makes contact with the ground. Repetitive trauma to this tissue can produce micro tears, the signature of plantar fasciitis. Pain usually develops on the calcaneus of the foot.
What causes Plantar Fasciitis?Plantar fasciitis foot injury generally occurs over time, rather than being the result of a single event. Micro trauma from repetitive stress to the tissue often combines with a biomechanical deficiency of the foot to produce the condition. aOlernKienOP

Training on improper, hard and/or irregular surfaces as well as excessive track work in spiked shoes, or steep hill running, can stress the plantar fascia past its limits of elasticity, leading to foot injury. Finally, failure in the early season to warm up gradually gives the athlete insufficient time for the structures of the foot to re acclimate and return to a proper fitness level for intensive exercise.
