The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band of connective tissue originating on the bottom surface of the heel and along the sole of the foot.
Plantar fasciitis is a term used to denote painful inflammation of this plantar fascia, usually from the repeated trauma that can result from unusual prolonged standing or exercise.
Plantar fasciitis causes pain in the heal and sole of the foot, worse when you take your first steps after getting out of bed or sitting for a long time.
Typically, the pain and stiffness will improve after you take a few steps, but it may come back after sitting, or after climbing stairs or standing for a long time.
