Plantar Fasciitis or Jogger’s heel is a common enthesopathy or disorder of the bony attachments at the heel. It is a common disorder which is characterized by pain, inflammation and weakening of the plantar fascia. It can be caused by age, weight, increased physical activity and repetitive strain injuries. This condition is common among middle-aged individuals, but may also strike younger ones. It may affect either feet or both. Athletes and soldiers are at high-risk because they exert constant pressures on their feet with their activities.
