Plantar Fasciitis- Why It's Common for Runners


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/10/2013 -- Plantar fasciitis, or pain in the foot, especially near the heel or arch, is unfortunately common to many of who run, walk, play basketball or tennis or are active in general. An irritation of the long, skinny rope of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, it’s one of the most frequent overuse injuries, especially as people age.

Until recently, scientists believed that it was an inflammatory condition. Actually, the injury seems to involve degeneration of the tissue; small tears in the fascia accumulate and become a constant, debilitating pain.

The best plan for healing it is to first back off of training, which will allow the slight tissue tears to heal. Stretching will also help in the recovery process.

There are many companies that produce quality performance wear for runners and athletes. One of those companies is Expert Brand.
