Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).

Dr Saleh Mohammed Kagzi, Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon at Zulekha Hospital, Dubai said that the condition is known as heel pain syndrome. “It is common after repetitive stress on the heel from the day to day lifestyle particularly in people who tend to stand a lot or walk or run a lot,” he said.
Pain may start gradually and continue for weeks or months. In rare case, no respite is available from any of the treatment modalities available. This syndrome is commonly found in both overweight and active individuals.
