How do you know it is plantar fasciitis?The worst pain happens when stepping on the foot after sitting or resting for long periods of time. It is most common with those first steps each morning when you wake up.
What causes plantar fasciitis?Constant stress on the plantar fascia causes tearing, irritation and inflammation. The plantar fascia runs along the arch of the foot and absorbs the repeated shock of walking and running. Plantar fasciitis is very common in people who are active. The stress from running, playing pickleball and many other activities can cause pain, tearing and inflammation resulting in plantar fasciitis.
Treating Plantar FasciitisMost people will not need medical intervention to get relief from plantar fasciitis. Applying ice and stretching daily can help relieve the pain. Wearing a proper foot support along with appropriate compression wear can help prevent future tears and inflammation.

"It really is amazing. I am absolutely in shock. I barely had any pain all day on women's or mixed day, which is incredibly rare as it always gets worse throughout the day when I have to stop and start all day. And then I drove 6 hours home in the car, and usually wouldn't be able to walk at that point, and I had zero pain and no pain this morning either. Wow wow wow!" - Lauren Stratman, professional pickleball player
