So what is plantar fasciitis? Well, in short, it’s one of the most common causes of foot pain. It’s estimated to impact around 2 million people in the United States each year. And one-in-ten people will have to deal with it during their lifetime.
As for who gets it…
Anyone can develop it. It’s not just runners or athletes. Although there is a higher likelihood of developing it if you’re active.
It is most common in people between the ages of 40-60, and obesity has been found to be a factor because of the added weight and stress placed on the ligaments and tendons of the feet.
