Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common forms of Repetitive Stress Injury. The condition causes inflammation and impacts the underside of the foot. It develops over many years with no symptoms and then suddenly causes debilitating pain. Pain is generally most intense with the first steps of the day. Sufferers of Plantar Fasciitis may also experience difficulty bending the foot and develop associated heel spurs (small bony calcifications) on the large heel bone at the back of the foot called the calcaneus.
