Got heel pain when you wake up in the morning? You may have plantar fasciitis. “The plantar fascia is a broad, flat ligament that travels from the base of the heel bone to the ball of the foot,” says podiatrist Dr. James R. Hanna of the New York State Podiatric Medical Association in New York. “Its purpose is to help support the longitudinal arch of the foot. Overstretching of the plantar fascia can cause injury and inflammation, resulting in plantar fasciitis.”

Stretch your feet regularly. Hanna advises stretching even before you get out of bed. “This usually involves a typical calf stretch that also stretches the plantar fascia,” he says.
