The plantar fascia is a strong band of connective tissue that runs from the heel to the base of the big toe. The plantar fascia works with the small muscles of the feet to slow the lowering of the arch as the foot contacts the ground with walking and running and assists with elevation of the arch when pushing off. Increased strain on the plantar fascia overloads it’s insertion onto the heel which overtime results in breakdown, inflammation and pain. This is known as plantar fasciitis.
