Plantar Fasciitis is a type of heel pain where the plantar fascia (the ligament that goes from your heel to your toes), is strained over time. This condition typically occurs in athletes, people who walk on hard surfaces over an extended period of time, and in people who have high arches or flat feet. It is a common problem that luckily has several at-home treatments that can significantly reduce discomfort and pain over time. However, if you're looking for immediate relief, there's no better way to release tension than by massaging the ligament itself.
