What Is Plantar Fascitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the toes. The plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch of the foot and helping with normal foot mechanics.

Key Points About Plantar Fasciitis:

Pain and Inflammation: The primary symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain, usually experienced near the bottom of the heel or along the arch of the foot. The pain is often most pronounced with the first steps in the morning or after periods of inactivity, but it may also intensify after prolonged standing or physical activity.

Causes: Plantar fasciitis typically develops when the plantar fascia is strained or stressed, leading to microtears and inflammation. The exact cause can vary but is often related to factors such as overuse, improper footwear, high-impact activities, obesity, or structural foot abnormalities.

What Is Achilles Tendonitis?

Achilles tendonitis refers to the inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the large tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. This condition is characterized by pain and swelling in the back of the heel or along the length of the tendon. The Achilles tendon plays a crucial role in the movement of the foot and ankle, particularly during activities like walking, running, and jumping.

Key Points About Achilles Tendonitis

Causes: The most common cause of Achilles tendonitis is overuse or repetitive stress on the Achilles tendon. This can result from activities that involve excessive running, jumping, or sudden increases in physical activity. Other contributing factors may include tight calf muscles, improper footwear, and biomechanical issues.

Symptoms: The primary symptom of Achilles tendonitis is pain and tenderness along the Achilles tendon. This pain may be more noticeable after physical activity or upon waking in the morning. Swelling and stiffness in the affected area may also be present.

Types: There are two main types of Achilles tendonitis: insertional and non-insertional.

  • Insertional Achilles Tendonitis: Involves inflammation at the point where the tendon attaches to the heel bone.
  • Non-insertional Achilles Tendonitis: Involves inflammation in the middle portion of the tendon, just above the heel.
