ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF FOOT AND ANKLE SURGEONS ALMOST 15% OF ALL ADULT FOOT INJURIES  INVOLVE PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  THIS CAUSES INTENSE PAIN WHEN YOU STRETCH THE TISSUE ON THE SOLE OF THE FOOT WHICH EXTENDS FROM THE HEEL TO THE TOES VIA THE ARCH.  

A MAJOR CAUSE OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS IN FEMALES IS FROM EXCESSIVE USE OF FLIP-FLOPS.  THIS FOOT WEAR WAS NOT INTENDED FOR EXTENDED WALKING IN AS THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR THE FOOT.  SHORT DISTANCES ON THE BEACH AND AROUND THE POOL ARE OK, BUT FOR EXTENDED WALKING SUPPORTIVE SHOES OR BIRLKENSTOCK TYPE SANDALS ARE A MUST.

PROPER FOOT WEAR IS SO IMPORTANT FOR PROPER FOOT HEALTH.  REMEMBER YOU ONLY GET ONE SET OF FOOT AND THERE IS NO ARTIFICIAL REPLACEMENT AS THERE IS FOR FOR KNEES ANS HIPS.  ONCE YOU BECOME IMPAIRED IN MOBILITY DUE TO PERMANENT FOOT INJURY OR DEGENERATIVE CHANGES YOU LIFE IS PERMANENTLY DISRUPTED.  PROPER FOOT HEALTH  IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU DON'T REALIZE WHAT YOU HAD UNTIL YOU LOOSE IT.
