When it comes down to it, there’s really only one primary cause of plantar fasciitis—excessive impact. Impact is only a problem because your foot is not equipped to handle the stress. Your foot needs “rigid” support. It’s difficult to find a shoe that truly supports the foot. When your foot is not supported, it cannot properly absorb and transfer impact, resulting in injuries like plantar fasciitis.

Contributing Factors to Plantar Fasciitis

Every day you take an average of 8,000 steps, and each one delivers the equivalent of twice your body weight to your heel. Over time, the plantar ligaments that run from your heel to the ball of your foot begin to overstretch, causing microtears that incite inflammation and pain—i.e., plantar fasciitis.

Factors that increase impact and/or compromise your foot’s ability to properly absorb it include:Illustration of Foot

  • Over-pronation
  • High arches
  • Flat feet
  • Shoes with flexible soles
  • Worn out and/or improperly-fitting shoes
  • Tightness in the Achilles tendon and/or calf muscles
  • Being overweight

Untreated plantar fasciitis can lead to other impact-induced conditions like heel spurs.

Contributing to Your Treatment

Many plantar fasciitis treatments only address the symptoms—pain and inflammation. However, if the underlying causes and contributing factors are not addressed, pain relief is only partial and temporary.

You can effectively address impact and other factors that contribute to plantar fasciitis by wearing the right shoes.
