Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. When there is too much stress on a band of tissue (a tendon, a ligament or the plantar fascia) from overuse, or from a sudden change in use that traumatizes the tissue, that can result in degeneration (becoming broken or worn down).
Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in the ligament. These can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to happen if:
Your feet roll inward too much when you walk or stress the big toe with weight when you run.
You have high arches or flat feet. *-If one of these is design of your foot, the only way to make it normal is by investing on flexibility on your hips, hamstrings, toes, shins, ankles and calves)
You walk, stand, or run for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces.
You are overweight.
You wear shoes that don’t fit well or are worn out.
You have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles.
The sides of your shins are very tight.
Your opposite glute is weak.
High-heeled shoes can also be lead to plantar fasciitis because thet make your Achilles tendon contract and shorten, which puts strain on the tissue around your heel.
It will be very difficult to train at high-level when you have a nagging injury, sometimes it is wise to cut the mileage, the desire and invest that energy on healing and your form. When you have so much expected from you and your body is not delivering, the problem you have will double and you’ll only be hurting your image and one-self. You’ll want to decrease your miles until the pain subsides, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop exercising completely. Swap swimming or bicycling for running. You’ll likely be able to return to running as the pain gradually improves or disappears.
If does not require surgery which I hope not, it can be treated but time and patience is what you must have. Treatement will begin with flexibility
