South Main Chiropractic: Your Solution for Plantar Fasciitis in Lexington, NC

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis: A Common Cause of Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes. It’s a prevalent cause of heel pain, especially pronounced in the first steps after waking up or after long periods of standing or sitting. While exercise doesn’t typically worsen the pain, it often intensifies afterwards.

What Increases the Risk of Plantar Fasciitis?

Age: Most common between ages 40 and 60.
Foot Mechanics: Flat feet, high arches, or abnormal walking patterns can distribute weight unevenly.
Obesity: Excess weight adds stress to the plantar fascia.
Occupation: Jobs involving prolonged walking or standing on hard surfaces can damage the plantar fascia.
