Plantar Fasciitis is very common in athletes, particularly runners, with even more chances if you have high arches. Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in the heel and arch of the foot. It is not a specific injury but builds up over time while the foot endures repetitive stress. To help ensure you do not damage your feet be sure to warm up gradually, and do not train on irregular surfaces. Gradually increase your workouts rather than inactivity to overdoing it. Plantar Fasciitis is most painful upon waking, your feet and heels are in a lot of pain. You can treat this with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, heal inserts, massage, and gentle range of motion activities.
