Why do I have chronic foot pain?
Q:"I am runner with stubborn plantar fasciitis. Why can’t I get it to heal?"
A:Plantar fasciitis is a structural diagnosis that describes the tissues that are compromised. In this case it is the plantar fascia located on the bottom of the foot. It doesn’t describe, however, why those tissues are irritated. The reasons can come from many different sources from the pelvis on down. Fixing You: Foot & Ankle Pain highlights how walking patterns, the shape of the femurs, foot muscle dysfunction, and calf tightness can all contribute to chronic stress of the foot and ankle tissues.
