Plantar Fasciitis is the pain and inflammation at the point where the thin band of tissues called the plantar fascia connects your heel bone to your toes. This tissue helps support the bones of your arch and absorbs some of the strain you put on your feet, whether from running or other kinds of vigorous exercise.
The most common plantar fasciitis symptom is pain, which is normally felt at the heel and occurs where the plantar fascia attaches to the heel bone. The pain can be intense when getting out of bed in the morning or getting up from a stationary position. The pain often lessens when walking, but may be persistent.
Pain that is commonly intense when getting out of bed is a common sign of Plantar Fasciitis, a particular type of heel pain.
