Plantar Fasciitis: Often Feel Heel Pain In the Morning?

What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain, impacting more than 2 million people each year. This condition in the heel of your foot is caused by inflammation and swelling of the plantar fascia, a ligament that extends from the heel to the toes on the bottom of the foot. The inflammation and swelling can lead to a feeling of sharp pain in the foot, toward the heel, or a feeling of tenderness throughout the underside of the foot, especially at the ball of the foot.

Why Heel Pain in the morning?

Plantar fasciitis most commonly occurs with the first few steps in the morning or after sitting for a long time and toward the end of the day from prolonged standing.

Your heel pain is usually really bad first thing in the morning because all of the muscles and tissues in your feet get a bit gluggy or stiff during the night, particularly the plantar fascia. This is one of the key laws of our physiology in that our tissues tend to adapt to the degree they are moved and because our feet don’t move a lot while we are sleeping the muscles, ligaments and tendons in our feet (and our whole body for that matter) tend to stiffen overnight.

Plantar fasciitis is characterized by a sharp pain when first getting out of bed in the morning, which reduces with walking. However, the pain may return at the end of the day and it maybe as painful as in the morning.
