Pain in the Bottom of your Foot and Heel Explained
The plantar fascia is a ligament that can be thought of as the continuation of your Achilles tendon across the back and bottom of your heel that plugs into the front of your toes along the bottom. This ligament has to absorb all of your body weight and is prone to microscopic tears over the years that lead to pain and swelling. As you start to get older or you start to walk more on your feet this pain just continues to get worse and worse.
