This Is What You Need To Do If Your Heel Hurts Whenever You Stand Up

Plantar fascia is one of the most common foot pain which is linked with a thin ligament that connects the heel to the front of the foot. The condition which causes this problem is termed as plantar fasciitis. There are few common possibilities which cause this problem but the most common symptoms include constant movement and excessive weight gain. Also, athletes and pregnant women are more prone to this condition. The sudden weight gain and constant movement can further lead to inflammation on the foot which subsequently leads to pain.
Let’s gain more insight about this condition.
