Common Running Injuries-Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common injury that many runners experience. Below is a brief description of the injury, and what you may be able to do to prevent plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis (arch pain)—Arch Pain is often caused by frequent stress on the plantar aspect, or the bottom of the foot. When the plantar fascia, a supportive, fibrous band of tissue running from the heel to the ball of the foot, becomes injured, pain on the bottom results. Forefoot or rear-foot instability with excessive pronation may result in plantar fasciitis. Overtraining may contribute. Shoes with good mid-foot stability may prevent plantar fasciitis. If pain persists, visit us at Blue Ridge Foot & Ankle!
