Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition that can cause significant discomfort and affect one's quality of life.

Plantar fasciitis can affect many people, especially athletes and those who are on their feet for extended periods.

It occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, becomes inflamed and irritated. This can lead to pain and discomfort, especially in the heel and arch of the foot. Fortunately, there are many effective treatments for plantar fasciitis, including physiotherapy.

Fortunately, residents of Saskatoon have access to expert care from chiropractors and physiotherapists at E3 Chiropractic + Wellness.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis commonly affects runners, athletes, and individuals who spend long hours on their feet. Various factors, including overuse, excessive strain, poor footwear, and biomechanical issues, can cause it. 

The most prevalent symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain, particularly in the morning or after periods of rest. The pain is often described as sharp, stabbing, or throbbing, and it can radiate along the arch of the foot.
