Do you have an intense pain in your foot that originates from the heel? This is one of the most common characteristic or telltale symptoms that indicate that you may have plantar fasciitis.
Although this painful, chronic and sometimes debilitating foot condition is often found in middle-aged adults, it can plaque anyone, regardless of age.
If you know of people with plantar fasciitis, you probably heard lots of horror stories about how the pain and discomfort in the condition can put their lives on hold. Whether you have it and do not want to make the condition worse or you are so scared that you get it, you are open to ways that will not trigger it. Here are some common reasons for this painful and increasingly common foot health condition:
Be overweight. Plantar fasciitis is triggered when pressure is applied to the feet. If you are overweight, put more pressure on your feet.
Being too ambitious in your training. Exaggerating yourself by doing too much in your exercise can cause plantar fasciitis. With this foot ratio, a tear is formed in the tendon that runs from the heel to the ball on your foot. Doing for rigorous training suddenly increases your chance of tearing or lowering this late. To do many specific types of physical activities that involve very hard shoving on the feet such as dancing, aerobics, hiking and running.
You have a job on your feet. The constant load and pressure of being on one's feet all day can take a toll, causing plantar fasciitis. If you factor in a hard floor, like one of cement, your risk of getting this painful foot ratio increases.
Bad shoes. Footwear as high heels that over time make it more difficult to move the foot and shoes with thin soles and poor boat support can also increase the risk of getting plantar fasciitis or causing it to flare up.
Anatomical problems. Your feet are designed to evenly distribute pressure and weight. When thrown away with arches that are either too high or too flat. Plantar fasciitis may occur. The way one goes and frequent calf muscles that make it difficult to bend the foot can also increase the risk.
Knowing what increases the risk of getting the plants' fasciite is a good starting point. Taking active measures to prevent injuries will also help. Here are some preventative suggestions:
Use supportive, fitting shoes. When the foot has the right support it needs and you have a comfortable shoe that fits, your risk of getting plantar fasciitis decreases.
Distance. Stretches the muscles of the feet and calves before doing physical activity and warming the muscles so that they do not have such great shock when you start exercising. This can not only prevent fasciitis, but it can also prevent other muscle strains and tears.
Stay in shape. When making sure your weight is kept in control, the less pressure you put on your feet, reducing the risk of plantar fasciitis.
Start exercising slowly and gradually. If you are trying a new workout or if you want to increase the intensity and duration of your workouts, start with slow, gradual changes and increases. This will help reduce the risk of exacerbating your plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful foot condition that can be prevented or minimized when you first know what can cause it and actively take measures to prevent it.
If you have any questions or concerns or wonder if your foot pain is plantar fasciit or not, contact your foot and foot supervisor and plan a meeting.
