What is an Plantar Fasciitis? 

Plantar Fasciitis Heel Pain - What is it? 

  • Plantar Fasciitis is a commonly reported condition which ultimately results in heel Pain. 

  • Plantar Fasciitis  is an injury to the large fibrous band of connective tissue under the arch and heel in which the plantar fascia becomes sore and thickened.  

  • The Plantar fascia is referred to as the plantar aponeurosis and is made up primarily of longitudinally positioned collagen fibres. It is anatomically divided into three bands that originate from the heel and progress forwards. These are known as the medial, central and lateral bands of the Plantar Fascia.

  • It is important to understand that the Plantar Fascia is fascia not muscle and cannot contract in any way. However, a healthy plantar fascia does lengthen and functions almost like a spring to help support the arch.  This is achieved as the plantar fascia is tensioned  through the great toe extension mechanism (Windlass Mechanism). As it is tensioned it helps support the arch. 

  • Currently the medical literature reports that Plantar fasciitis is a degenerative process of micro tears of the plantar fascia in which fascial thickening and scarring as well as a breakdown of collagen results rather than inflammatory changes. 

  • Hence many referring to this condition now as Plantar Fasciopathy rather than Plantar Fasciitis (which means inflamed plantar fascia).

  • Some simple facts:

  • Plantar Fasciitis is the number 1 adult heel pain complaint 

  • Approximately 10% of population will experience Plantar Fasciitis at some time during their life

  • Plantar Fasciitis is most common in women

  • Plantar Fasciitis is most common in people aged between 35 and 60. 

  • Plantar Fasciitis is the most googled foot injury with over 2 million people per day using this search term

Why do I have it

  • Plantar Fasciitis - Why do I have this heel pain all of a sudden?

  • The cause of Plantar Fasciitis is unclear but we do know that: 

  • Pain in the heel is normally caused from the over working of the plantar foot muscles and the planter fascia 

  • Plantar Fasciitis risk factors also include excessive weight gain, long periods of standing poor footwear change in loads (ie more steps) as well as hyper pronation syndromes.

  • At our private clinic in Australia we see Plantar Fasciitis heel pain all year round but we think it is particularly prevalent during the summer months when people are more active and more likely to be barefoot.

  • At the Lower Extremity Group we also see a trend that correlates weakness in particular foot musculature with Plantar Fasciitis heel pain.
