Homeopathy: Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the fascia of the foot that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot (near the toes). This condition causes heel pain on first motion either in the morning or after being in a seated position for a long time and then getting up. The pain gets worse after spending a long time on the feet. The fascia supports the muscle and arch of the foot. Risk factors for this condition include: obesity, excessive running/exercise, flat foot or overarched foot and overuse of the muscles of the foot.
