Plantar fasciitis, also known as ‘first step pain’ can occur if you’re too flexible, leading to fallen foot arches, or from tightness that pulls on the arch, or simply from poor foot posture.

Plantar Fasciitis FAQ

What causes plantar fasciitis?

Everyone is different. It may be due to how flexible/ inflexible your foot arch is, your gait cycle, or due to foot posture issues. It’s important to see a qualified podiatrist who can find the root of the problem. Each foot is different!

It depends on severity of your pain but in most cases the patient is able to continue walking and normal activities. We recommend you always do a little stretch and get some circulation going before you take your first step out of bed in the morning or after sitting for long periods.

Yes, with proper management and professional advice from a podiatrist you are likely to gradually improve and recover from plantar fasciitis. Getting help promptly can shorten the duration of the injury. Often the longer the you’ve had it, the longer the treatment time.
