PODIATRIST, DR RAY MCCLANAHAN STATES, "A SHOOTING PAIN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEEL IS TYPICALLY PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  IT COMES FROM INFLAMMATION OF A BAND OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE - CALLED THE FASCIA - THAT EXTENDS ALONG THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HEEL TO THE BALL OF YOUR FOOT.  STUDIES SHOW THAT 40 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WHO SEE PODIATRISTS DEAL WITH HEEL PAIN LIKE PLANTAR FASCIITIS."

PODIATRIST MCCLANAHAN ALSO STATES, "RUNNERS AND ATHLETES OFTEN GET PLANTAR FASCIITIS BECAUSE OF EXCESSIVE TRAINING, ESPECIALLY IF THEY PRONATE -- A ROLLING IN OF THE FOOT AND ANKLE WITH EACH STRIDE.  BUT YOUR SHOES MAY ALSO BE A CAUSE.  FOOTWEAR WITH A TAPERED TOEBOX FORCES YOUR BIG TOE IN AN EXTENDED POSITION.  THIS CAUSES THE MUSCLE THAT CONTROLS YOUR BIG TOE --THE HALLUCIS--TO PULL YOUR FOOT UNNATURALLY, WHICH RESTRICTS BLOOD FLOW TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FOOT.  OVER TIME, THIS CAN LEAD TO PLANTAR FASCIOSIS."
