Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition we see here at Canberra Podiatry. It is an injury to the fascia that is connected from your heel bone to the base of the five toes (metatarsals). Plantar fasciitis usually presents as pain in the morning, pain after rest and pain after activity (pain after a long day of standing).
