Diabetes and Plantar Fasciitis – What it is and What to Do about It

Plantar fasciitis is a very painful condition affecting the heel of the foot. It is caused by inflammation of the soft tissue that connects the bone of the heel to the toes. The pain is generally a stabbing or burning sensation and it is usually much worse in the mornings because the soft tissue tightens overnight while you are sleeping. Once you are up and about the soft tissue limbers up and stretches, which results in a reduction of the pain. However, the pain can return and worsen after long periods of standing, walking, or when getting up after being seated for a period of time.
