Salvere Blog: The Foot — Beyond Plantar Fasciitis and Tendonitis

by Salvere Health And Fitness

Okay, so last week we looked at the structure of the foot and how it’s engineered. Now, on to something that might be a little more interesting. How many of you know someone with plantar fasciitis or some type of tendonitis in the Achilles or elsewhere around the foot area or bunions or a sprained ankle?  Lets revisit the foot structure.
Now, breaking things down a little bit, what exactly is a tendonitis or fasciitis? When you see “itis” on the end of an anatomical thing, usually it simply means there’s inflammation in that area. Tendonitis, for example, means the tendon somehow became inflamed. Uncovering why holds the key to real, true healing.

So, plantar fasciitis – The word plantar literally means the sole of the foot and fascia is connective tissue around muscles or organs keeping them together or separating them from each other. Putting this together, plantar fasciitis happens when the fascia on the sole of the foot becomes inflamed and feels terribly uncomfortable.

What would then cause this area to become irritated enough to cause pain?? How would we go about “fixing” it so it goes away?
