There are different types of foot pains, but planter fasciitis pain is the most common. The plantar fascia is the band of tissue or ligament connecting the heel bone to the toes. It is the one that provides support for the arch of the foot. If it gets strained, it can be incredibly painful. Additionally, it may get irritated and swollen. Finally, the bottom of the foot or the heel will hurt any time you walk or stand up.
Anyone can get plantar fasciitis. It is common in those that wear high-heel shoes, soldiers and athletes – although almost anyone can suffer from it. Either foot, or both can be affected.

Planter fasciitis pain can occur when any of the following occurs
- Having tight calf muscle or Achilles tendons
