What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia in the foot. The leading cause of this inflammatory tendinopathy is a mechanically induced irritation of the plantar fascia at the calcaneal insertion. The most commonly reported symptoms include pain at the first step in the morning and pain in the heel after or during exercise. The medial tubercle of the calcaneus on the inner side of the heel can be painful when firm pressure is applied.
Diagnostic imaging methods such as X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasonography for the ankle and foot may help rule out specific soft tissue and bone pathologies. With imaging studies, stress fractures, tumors, and calcium deposits need to be ruled out to determine the leading cause of heel pain. However, heel spurs may also present in asymptomatic patients.
Patients who are obese, over the age of 30, and stand for long hours are at higher risk for plantar fasciitis. Structural and biomechanical factors such as pes cavus, flat foot, and limited plantar flexion may also cause heel and foot pain.
