Therefore, in this segment, we are going to discuss a condition known as plantar fasciitis that happens to given below with a detailed description.

But then these are called plantar fascia. They are mainly responsible for giving proper shape and size to the foot and get the overall shape back to how it was. But if there was an underlying condition and anything were to happen to these muscles or strands of muscles, then the condition is known as plantar fasciitis.

But what if this arch was very high and abnormally high, then this is where the condition of cavus foot happens to come into the picture. It’s the condition where an excess amount of arch is witnessed that puts a whole lot more pressure on the sole and the heels of the foot that makes it impossible for anyone to even have a normal life.

Flat Feet

the foot is a place that involves several complex functions to occur at the same time and give the individual the ability to actually get the best use out of it.
