Plantar fasciitis is a serious, painful condition that occurs when the long, flat ligament (plantar fascia) along the bottom of the foot develops tears and causes inflammation. This ligament attaches at the heel and extends to your toes. When you walk or run, you land on your heel and raise yourself on your toes as you shift your weight to your other foot, causing all your weight to be held up by your plantar fascia. Such repetitive force can pull the fascia from its attachment on your heel, damaging or even rupturing the ligament.
