Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, the thick band of connective tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, from the base of your toes all the way to your heel bone. This condition is common among runners, as well people who regularly wear unsupportive shoes, says Yolanda Ragland, DPM, a podiatrist in New York City.

The easy-to-recognize sharp, stabbing pain associated with plantar fasciitis is notoriously at its worst first thing in the morning, when you get out of bed and take your first steps. Once you get up and moving, the pain should improve as you walk, and using a tool like a lacrosse or tennis ball or spiky massage roller several times a day may help the pain gradually go away. “Anything that allows the bottom of the arch to roll and lengthen is a good way to treat [the pain],” Dr. Ragland says.
