Plantar Fasciitis Overview

Plantar fasciitis is an irritation of the plantar fascia. This thick band of connective tissue travels across the bottom of the foot between the toes and the heel. It supports the foot’s natural arch. In addition, it stretches and becomes taut whenever the foot bears weight. This video will explain the anatomy of the Plantar Fascia.
