Plantar fasciitis can affect almost anybody at anytime, regardless of age or activity level, and can severely reduce activity level and overall quality of life for those affected. General symptoms include pain in the base of the heel, especially acute after sleep or periods of sitting/inactivity.
If you happen to be suffering from any of these symptoms general recommendations including stretching the calf and foot, as well as massage and ice therapy for the heel and arch. Additionally you want to keep the foot supported at all times, try not to go barefoot…even around the house.
