Has this complaint always been so prevalent do we think or are we just better at recognizing and naming it these days? I’ve had it since moving house just under two years ago and it can be incredibly painful and make me wince some days, although it’s not as bad now I’ve been wearing orthotics for the past 18 months.

Thinking back, my late Nan must have suffered similarly but she never gave it a name.

Could be that the modern day lifestyle play a part and meaning plantar fasciitis more widespread in younger people? Lot more people wear High heels and even office work and sitting for long periods could alter posture affecting your feet in some way?

I guess solving these problems and not looking for a quick pain easing is best. Leaving the root cause untreated could mean injuries could starting creeping up into your ankle…then your lower legs to your knees and lower back eeek!!
