Are you dealing with mysterious foot pain? Some people describe it as a sharp pain, like you sprained something when you know you didn’t. There’s a decent chance that your foot pain is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes, known as the plantar fascia.
Along the bottom of your foot are muscles and a tough fascia known as the plantar fascia. When you use your feet, especially for activities like running, carrying heavy things, or moving along hard surfaces all day, it puts pressure on the muscles and fascia in your feet. The plantar fascia absorbs that pressure, kind of like the shocks in a car. However, too much of it can cause injury or tear the plantar fascia. When this happens, it causes foot pain.
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that often occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.
