While I have had a plethora of health problems, I have been fortunate to have very few problems with my feet. And after researching this topic, I am particularly thankful that I have never had to deal with this condition.
What is plantar fasciitis?
with advice from Chelsea Cole, PTA

Did you know that your feet are likely to walk as much as 75,000 miles by age 50? Healthy feet are key to a healthy life. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common orthopedic problems that can wreak havoc on the foot.
On the sole of the foot, the plantar fascia is a thick piece of tissue that runs from the base of the heel to the tip of the toes, along the arch of the foot. When it is inflamed or irritated, the condition is referred to as plantar fasciitis. Its symptoms are typically severe pain along the arch of the foot and the heel.
