If you often wear shoes with high heels (high heels), the Achilles tendon is the tendon that attaches to the heel to contract / tense and shorten, causing strain on the tissue around the heel which would also lead to the risk of Plantar Fasciitis higher.
  3. Arthritis. Some types of arthritis can cause inflammation in the tendons of your foot, which can lead to Plantar Fasciitis.

  7. Anatomical abnormalities of the foot as the foot flat / flat (no arch), or conversely, excessive curvature. People with flat feet have less shock absorption, in which it increases the stretch and tension on the plantar fascia. People with a high arch has a tighter plantar tissue, which also causes less shock absorption.
