Dr. Burton S. Schuler explains pronation and plantar fasciitis

Since the majority of Americans who suffer from foot problems suffer from heel pain, it is crucial to understand the common causes and treatments for this pernicious medical issue. One of the most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, which is caused by the degradation of the plantar fascia, a fibrous ligament that is found at the bottom of the foot. This degradation results from the inflammation that happens when people are on their feet most of the day. While treatment for plantar fasciitis includes proper shoes, drugs, stretching exercises, and orthotics, you may find yourself trying all of these various treatments with little or no impact. MORE
