Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when there is repeated stress to the heel and causes small tears in the tissue, resulting in inflammation. It might take about six to twelve months for it to cure, and it is essential to give rest to the foot if there is any inflammation. Massage the foot regularly, and this can provide a relaxed feeling to the foot.
