‘OK’, you may be only looking to learn something, about the physical symptom – mental – medical – features, of living with ‘Plantar Fasciitis‘. Now, listen my ‘amazing ladies’, I promise I will not bore you, with overwhelming paragraphs that go on, and on, and you get very bored or fall asleep, Nah!, [I will keep it short, as possible] giving only the good stuff, what you really need to know. So, what is ‘Plantar Fasciitis‘ Joe 90?.
The Symptoms of, ‘Plantar Fasciitis‘, [plantar fascia] is inflammation of the fibrous tissue that forms or occurs at the base [bottom] of your foot, [plantar fascia] that connects your heel bone to your toes. [Note: Stabbing Pain] It is usually first thing in the morning, as you get up, and start to move. The pain decreases, however, but may return, when you stand up [after sitting], or have been standing, following long periods. [The people most prone – the overweight – runners – those who wear negligible footwear, have an increased possibility of plantar fasciitis. [After exercise, pain is usually worse, not during.]
Basically, the plantar fascia is shaped like a bowstring, which supports the arch of the feet, absorbing shock when walking. If enough tension or stress on the bowstring is too great, the fascia, continually stretching and tearing in the bowstring area, could, irritate/inflame the fascia. [The cause remains unclear in numerous case of plantar fasciitis]
Risk Factors – Age: Plantar Fasciitis – Is most common between the ages 40 – 60 years old – certain types of activities – long distance-running, aerobic and ballet dancing – could most-certainly contribute to plantar fasciitis – flat feet – high arch – an abnormal walking pattern, can affect weight distribution, when standing, putting an uneven stress on the plantar fasciitis. I do not want to labour too much on obesity or even being obese, just to say, excess pounds, does put unwanted stress on the plantar fascia, let along jobs that keep you on the feet, [most of the day] as ‘police’, teachers, and factory workers, retail staff, can damage the plantar fasciitis. [Please note: Failing to treat plantar fasciitis, might make it very difficult to do daily activities, it is in your interest, to seek the best medical advice.]
For instance, usually wearing ‘High-Heels‘, is an ‘abnormal’ function, which can pinch the nerves linking toes, causing pain and discomfort – bones squeezing a nerve between the third and fourth metatarsal heads, the outcome is: After a long day at work, or a night of dancing, these activities place notable pressure on the forefoot area, so walking, jumping and even sprinting, become a problem. I have ’10 Amazing’ – Sexy – Snug – Bunion – Shoes – that would be an appropriate fit, and for other symptoms, – [Plantar Fasciitis, Bunions – Morton’s Neuroma, Diabetic / Neuropathy – Hammertoe / Mallet Toe – Claw Toe – Flat Feet] and many more, ‘phew’. [There are more things you could do, to look out for when buying shoes, however, I will come on to that next.]

 Use Toe Separators – Elongate shrunken tendons, that have become short and tight, encouraging toes to uncurl to – a healthy position – to gently stretch and align the foot, and toes, sitting or laying down, whenever you have 10 – 15 minutes – toe stretchers also improve blood flow to the feet, breaks down adhesions, improves heel and foot pain, strengthens muscles and ligaments, in the toes and beyond.
