If you often suffer from heel pain at the base of your foot, you may be suffering from plantar fasciitis. While this condition may sound odd and abstract, it's actually extremely common, and is a result of the plantar fascia (the tight band of tissue that makes up the arch of your foot) becoming inflamed, leading to irritation, pain and a disruption to your gait. While common, this condition can be treated with the right pair of shoe insoles or inserts, which can help to reduce your pain and speed up your recovery time.
