What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
(http://ow.ly/gfzT30mZC7N)

Plantar fasciitis causes great amounts of pain, localized within the bottom of the heel. The plantar fascia is characterized as a thick, web-like ligament that works by connecting your heel to the front segment your foot. It supports the arch of your foot and helps your ability to walk. Plantar fasciitis is also one of the most common complaints given to orthopedic specialists. This is because the plantar fascia ligaments experience a lot of wear and tear in daily activities over extended periods of time.
