Top Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

If you’ve been wondering whether or not you have Plantar Fasciitis, you’re probably also wondering how you could have gotten it.

This can be especially true if you live an active lifestyle. Afterall, living an active lifestyle is supposed to be good for you!

Plantar Fasciitis is actually one of the most common causes of foot pain we see, and it is definitely treatable.

So, back to the big question… What causes this type of pain?

Well, Plantar Fasciitis can be the result of a structural cause like very flat feet or high arches, but other conditions and lifestyle factors can also contribute.

Let’s take a closer look.

One thing you’ll notice when reviewing the list of the top causes of Plantar Fasciitis is how often it affects or is affected by other parts of the body.

Back to our previous example, people with very flat feet tend to develop low back and hip pain as a result of an altered gait – or manner of walking.

In other words, what starts in your feet can radiate up and vice versa. Understanding that is key to understanding how foot pain can develop.

Here are some of the other top causes of Plantar Fasciitis.

● Obesity: Foot pain is common, as is pain in the knees and low back, as a result of the increased physical stress on the body that is often associated with this condition.

● Jobs that Require Long Periods of Standing: Time spent on your feet plays a role when it comes to foot pain, but the biggest concern here is posture – specifically whether or not you tend to lean or stand on one leg which can result in foot, knee, and hip pain on one side of the body.

● Tight Calf Muscles: It’s been reported in recent studies that isolated gastrocnemius contracture – loosely, a shortening of the main muscle in the calf responsible for flexing the knee and foot – was found in 83% of Plantar Fasciitis patients.

● Arthritis: The term arthritis is used to very generally refer to joint inflammation in the body, and it can affect the joints and fascia of the feet as well, meaning the development of Plantar Fasciitis can be a common side effect with juvenile idiopathic arthritis and other arthritic conditions.

Now, you may have another question. Can this kind of foot pain go away on its own? Yes, Plantar Fasciitis doesn’t have to stick around forever. The road to recovery starts with understanding the top causes of Plantar Fasciitis. The next step is understanding the next steps!

When I showed up I had terrible posture, shoulder pain, depression, anxiety, burning headaches uo the back of my head, and problems sleeping.. after my first adjustment almost all of my symptoms were gone after consistent care I feel 100% better. All of the mentioned symptoms haven't returned. My 9 year old son lats in bed for hours before falling asleep, since his adjustment hes asleep within 15 nib. Also my 8 year old son has been having a wet bed for a year straight I took him in and he was adjusted after only 1 adjustment he was dry for 13 days straight then had 4 nights of wet cause his lumber was back out of place. We made an apt again and sure enough hes been dry 2 days again. I am convinced weekly visits for him until his muscles adjust to holding it into place is perfect. Dr. Tim is my hero.

I treated with Dr Tim following an auto accident and he was awesome! I told him I feel "a million percent better" after being treated in his office for lower back pain, sciatica and hip pain. I saw a pain specialist and went to physical therapy, neither provided relief. I saw Dr Tim and started getting immediate results. My 82 year old dad was in the same accident and also treated with Dr. Tim. He is now pain-free following his treatments! Elana in the front office is so nice - the whole office atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is so friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Tim and Dr. Jeni.
