Pain in Foot Arch and Heel

  • This pain is called plantar fasciitis; and it is the result of overworked ligaments under your foot.


What is Happening?

  • Your foot develops microscopic scar tissue due to constant strain.
  • These ligaments are constantly inflamed and swollen.
  • They do not have an opportunity to heal, and are especially painful in the morning.
  • Once you get moving and the blood flushes out harmful immune cells, you feel better after 30 minutes.
  • Massaging the arch can make it feel better by increasing blood flow.
