Plantar Fasciatis

Plantar Fasciatis


Plantar Fasciitis is a common condition affecting the feet, causing pain and discomfort in the heel and bottom of the foot. It is caused by the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs from the heel to the toes. Physio Active, a leading physiotherapy clinic, provides top-notch treatment to help individuals manage and recover from Plantar Fasciitis.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and supports the arch. When the plantar fascia becomes overused or overstretched, it can become inflamed and cause pain and discomfort in the heel area, resulting in Plantar Fasciitis.

Risk Factors:

Age: Most common in people between 40-60 years old
Foot Anatomy: High arches, flat feet, or tight calf muscles
Weight: Excess weight puts stress on the plantar fascia
Occupation: Prolonged standing or walking on hard surfaces
High-impact activities: Running, jumping, or dancing


Heel pain, especially in the morning
Stiffness in the foot, especially in the morning
Tenderness in the heel and bottom of the foot
Swelling in the heel
Difficulty standing on tiptoes
